Why should students in the Appalachian region consider going to college?

Students in the Appalachian region should consider going to college to experience unique and fascinating opportunities that come once in a lifetime. They will get the chance to meet people from everywhere, outside the state and the country, that will help them expand their horizons and learn about different cultures so that they can become well rounded individuals. Most importantly, I would tell them to go to college to receive an education and to explore different fields they are interested in and passionate about that in the long run will prepare them to be successful professionals in this world.

What is one piece of advice you might be able to offer a middle or high school student?
