College Essay Writing Workshop. FHFE and Riverbend Education Solutions, LLC are providing an opportunity for rising high school seniors to attend a four-hour workshop devoted to brainstorming essay topics and developing relevant essay structure. The goal of the workshop is for each student to leave with either a solid outline or first draft of a main personal statement and have the tools to develop more. The 2019 workshop will be held on June 6th at Nagel. Current Anderson HS and Turpin HS juniors can register here.
