The San Joaquin County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce will hold its Ninth Annual Student Financial Aid and College Awareness Workshop next weekend.

The workshop will offer high school seniors, athletes, transfer students and their parents free step-by-step assistance filling out the complex Free Application for Federal Student Aid form. The FAFSA opens the door not only to free money for college through Cal Grants, but also to many other forms of financial aid assistance for paying college tuition.

The forum also features workshops for sixth-, seventhand eighth-graders, all high school students and their parents so they can get an early start on how to prepare for their future. The focus is on what classes to take for college preparation, study habits, extra-curricular activities and how important parent participation is to a student's success.

The event starts at 8 a.m. on Jan. 29 at the Alex G. Spanos Center, 3601 Pacific Ave., on the University of the Pacific campus.

For more information, contact the chamber office at 209-943-6117.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
