This is College Application Week in West Virginia.

Faculty, counselors, and representatives from the GearUp program are giving seniors at Webster County High School some one-on-one help to fill out their college applications.

West Virginia has a 24-percent college degree attainment rate and organizers said they want to increase that figure.

"It's nice having a mentor, a teacher, a GearUp coordinator there beside them to answer questions to answer their questions as they come up," said Jason Luyster, GearUp Regional Coordinator. "And it just creates a little less hindrance to getting that foot in the door and taking the first step in this process."

Faculty has been working with students at each grade level to plan for life after high school.
