  • Dear Chester High School Administration, Parents, and Students,

    I am a non-traditional student, who has returned to Southern Illinois University Carbondale to complete my educational goals, currently I am a Workforce Education Major, of the School of Education and Human Services.

    I am interested in how many students may be interested in a mentoring 1 week program at SIUC for college prep. For those interested please contact your school's counselor and [email protected]
    Current ratings are 4.

    Sincerely,
    Rebekah Hillerman
