April 2007 Press Release





Aid to Juniors Seeking Postsecondary Educational Options



Annapolis, MD (April 3, 2007) - The Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC) has issued for the second year, a postsecondary educational planning calendar developed in-house for use as a resource for high school students and the teachers and family members who work with them to plan their futures. The Commission has mailed to all Maryland public and private high schools these 15-month calendars, which begin with April of the students’ junior year and end June 30, 2008.

“The purpose of this calendar is to provide students with month-by-month sets of reminders, pointers, and information sources to help them think about their plans after high school,” said Dr. James E. Lyons, Sr., Secretary, MHEC. “We hope it will help them with the processes of applying for postsecondary education and financial assistance.”

Although the calendar is geared to students applying to two- or four-year colleges, the Commission hopes it will offer something to each student, whether the student intends to apply to a competitive four-year college or is mulling over the possibility of any education after high school. The calendar is intended to be a useful tool to counselors as they guide students in making informed choices about their futures. The back flap lists all Maryland colleges and contact information.

The calendar was funded in part through a grant from United State Aid Funds, Inc. (USAFunds).

This calendar is a complement to the Commission’s ever-popular College 411: The Student Guide to Higher Education and Financial Aid in Maryland, which is distributed in English and Spanish each year to high school seniors.
