The Holmes County Education Foundation sponsored an ACT Test Turbo Workshop on Friday, August 3 at the Holmes County Higher Education Center. Brian Stewart, of BWS Education Consulting, served as instructor. This event helped 24 incoming high school juniors and seniors with ACT Test preparation, where Stewart addressed such ideas as highlighting key words, note-taking, and how to handle test anxiety. “The foundation was very excited that we were able to sponsor this workshop and partner with BWS Education Consulting and the Holmes County Higher Education Center,” said Darla Stitzlein, executive director with the Education Foundation. “We were impressed with BWS Education Consulting. We feel confwident that students’ ACT test scores will improve, thereby making them eligible for more financial aid.”

Students who participated in the event said they felt better prepared for their next ACT test, and that they would recommend the workshop to their friends. “I feel much better prepared about going into the test knowing what to expect and pacing myself,” one student remarked. Another student said, “I felt like I learned a lot and have a much better understanding on how to approach each test individually and the ACT as a whole. Thank you!”

“It was a pleasure to work with the students of the greater Holmes County area for the ACT Turbo Workshop,” Stewart stated. “They were all very attentive and enthusiastic. It was without a doubt one of the best groups for which I have done a presentation.” Stewart suggests that students explore his website, www.freetestprep.com, for practice questions and other resources. The next ACT test is scheduled for Sept. 8. Students need to register by August 17, and can do so at www.actstudent.org.

The Holmes County Education Foundation (HCEF) has been encouraging further education for Holmes County residents by awarding approximately $6 million in financial need-based scholarships and grants since 1991. To learn more about the foundation, visit the website at www.hcef.net.
