ROCKFORD (WREX) -

Rockford residents interested in furthering their education got a chance to learn about area colleges at a college fair held at Rockford's City Hall on Tuesday.

The fair was held by the City of Rockford's Human Resources Department and featured several colleges and universities. Some attendees were fresh out of high school, but other already have one degree and are interested in getting another.

"I had to work, you know, I have three kids to raise going forwards and I saw opportunities go by without the degree," Jaime Guerrero said. "I had the work knowledge, the skills, I just needed that degree."

The fair provided information on classes, how to enroll, and financial assistance.
