INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Hundreds of high school students and their families came to Shortridge Magnet High School on Saturday for a chance to further their education.

The 100 Black Men of Indianapolis and Indiana Black Expo hosted the 12th Annual Joint College and Scholarship Fair to assist students in meeting and learning about 80 different universities, colleges and other higher education institutions from across the country.

The Saturday event was different from most college fairs because, along with meeting with admissions and financial aid representatives, students have the opportunity to be admitted or even gain a scholarship on-the-spot.

Local students of all ages attended the fair, especially those who are African American and Latino.

Colleges who sent representatives included Indiana University, Morehouse College, Fisk University, Purdue University, Xavier University and Dillard University.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – “Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!”

As a magazine cartoonist, Theodor Seuss Geisel began signing his work under the mock-scholarly title of “Dr. Theophrastus Seuss” in 1927. He shortened that to “Dr. Seuss” in 1928.

A new Dr. Seuss book called “What Pet Should I Get?” is set for release in July. You can pre-order it here.
