Workshop aims to help high school students craft college admissions essays

A workshop held in early November to help high school students craft their personal statement essays for college applications was so successful that another one has been scheduled.

The Second Great Tacoma Personal Statement Workshop is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. to noon and 12:30 to 3 p.m. on Dec. 6. It will be at the Topping Boys and Girls Club, 3875 S. 66th St.

Students can sign up at, or drop in. Bring a draft or get started at the workshop. Volunteers include faculty and students from local colleges.

The event is sponsored by Graduate Tacoma and Write@253.
