Are you a high school student looking to find out more about college opportunities? Are you a service member who is retiring soon and trying to get information about the Troops to Teachers program? How about a military spouse who needs certification in a certain career field?

For people in any of these situations and many more, the Joint Base San Antonio Education Service Centers are hosting college fairs July 24-26.

Representatives from up to 60 universities, colleges, technical institutions and career schools will be available, as well as representatives from Veteran Affairs, ROTC, the Career Skills program and various officer and enlisted education programs.

“The college fairs are open to anyone who is looking to further their education,” said Annette Henderson, chief of education and training, 802nd Force Support Squadron at JBSA-Randolph. “These institutions offer everything from certification programs to graduate degrees.”

The first fair is from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 24 at the Keith A. Campbell Memorial Library at JBSA-Fort Sam Houston Library, building 1222, 3011 Harney Path.

The next is at the JBSA-Randolph Library, 5th Street East, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. July 25.

The final fair is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. July 26 at the Wilford Hall Ambulatory Surgical Center at JBSA-Lackland.

“People just need to bring themselves and their curiosity,” Henderson said. “This is a great avenue to get a bunch of great information to jumpstart their education.”
