AAUW Howard County
AAUW Howard County, in conjunction with the Princeton Review, will sponsor an ACT practice test for high school students on Saturday, January 12, 2013, at the Vantage House Auditorium, 5400 Vantage Point Road, Columbia. The “Test Fest,” from 10:30 am to 3:30 pm, is modeled after the successful Practice SAT sessions previously offered.
A “Scores Back” Strategy Session will follow on Saturday,
February 2 from 2:30 to 4 pm, where participants will receive personal reports and learn more about the results.
Taking the practice ACT test under actual testing conditions is a great way for students to try their hands at the types of questions they will face on the ACT exams. They can build confidence and get comfortable with the testing formats.
Preregistration at for the sessions is required. The cost for the two sessions is $15, a donation to the AAUW Scholarship Fund. Checks should be sent to Amy Robinson, 5563 Nettlebed Ct., Columbia, MD 21045.

For every generation there seems to be a day that is a seminal moment that defines their generation.  For my parents generation it was the attack on Pearl Harbor that happened 71 years ago today.  The picture above is the USS Arizona 
Memorial.  The seminal moment for my generation was the Kennedy assassination and for my kids it will always be 911.
