JUNEAU - Across Alaska, students planning to attend college in the fall are gearing up for the fifth annual Alaska College Goal Sunday on Jan. 31. In Juneau, the 2010 Alaska College Goal Sunday will be held at Thunder Mountain High School, from 2 to 4 p.m. Parents and students are encouraged to bring their 2008 tax returns, their 2009 tax documents, and their laptop computers and come prepared to clear this daunting hurdle to college financing. Students will receive help with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA.
