GERMANTOWN – Over 300 people attended a College, Trade School and Financial Aid Workshop hosted by Congressman John K. Delaney (MD-6) Wednesday evening in Germantown. The event was free to attend and open to the public and took place at Northwest High School. The workshop is the 30th constituent services workshop Congressman Delaney has hosted since 2015. Congressman Delaney will also host a College, Trade School and Financial Aid Workshop Thursday evening at Washington County Technical High School in Hagerstown.

Over 80 schools and organizations participated in the workshop, giving local parents and students an opportunity to speak one-on-one with representatives. A full list of participating schools is below.

“Education is one of the keys to the American Dream, especially in today’s high-tech global economy,” said Congressman Delaney. “I know first-hand how powerful education can be, my parents weren’t able to attend college, but thanks to their hard work and scholarships I was able to go to college and then on to law school and a career in business. I’d like to thank all of the schools and organizations that participated in this workshop, which was designed to give Marylanders an opportunity to ask questions, learn more about the options available to them and make a more informed decision for their family.”
