If you are a fifth-grader already thinking about college, the St. Paul Public Schools has an event for you -- and for older kids, too.

Johnson Aerospace & Engineering High School, 1349 Arcade St., will host the 10th annual Thinking College Early Fair from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22.

The event is open to parents and students in grades 5-12, and will offer opportunities to meet with representatives of state, community and private colleges, among them historically black colleges and universities, event organizers say.

Students also will be provided information about admission requirements, financial aid, scholarships and careers. Breakout sessions are planned for parents and students.

The event is sponsored by Progressive Baptist Church Education Ministries.

For additional information, contact Jo Ann Clark at 651-774-5503 or clark_partridge@msn.com, or Dana Abrams at 651-767-8394 or dana.abrams@spps.org.
