NCAA Eligibility Workshop is Popular Amongst Millville Student-Athletes

The Millville High School Counseling Department hosted an NCAA Eligibility Workshop on Thursday, August 7th. The counselors, along with the Millville Athletic Director, David LaGamba, spoke to athletes and their parents about the academic requirements to graduate from Millville High Scholl as an NCAA eligible athlete.  After the presentation, students were given a copy of their transcript and courses for the upcoming school year so that they could complete an activity that checked their individual progress toward eligibility. All of this was done under the care and assistance of the Millville Counselors, Mrs. Russo, Mrs. Giercyk, Ms. Davis, Ms. Jackson, and Mrs. LaFerriere.
