(WMC-TV) - Many young adults and children are now more informed about colleges in the Mid-South.

The fourth annual Classic College Fair, hosted by the City of Memphis' Office of Youth Services, reached between 1,500 to 2,000 students.

While there, organizers stressed the importance of going to college.

"Getting a college degree is a passport to the middle class and beyond. That's our job...to make sure these students are exposed and have information they need to succeed," stated Youth Services representative James Nelson.

Over 60 schools attended the event.
