Ivy Tech Community College is hosting an event for area high school 21st Century Scholars and their parents to help students maintain eligibility for their scholarships and learn more about the college, its programs, and career pathway opportunities.

Chris Schilling, school spokesman, says the event is Feb. 28 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Columbus Learning Center. He says that all 21st Century Scholar students in Grades 9-12 from Bartholomew, Brown, Jackson, Jennings and Decatur counties are invited.
