My Students

My students are seniors from a small, rural, agricultural town. We have 1 school building where all students PK-12 attend. Everyone knows everyone here and few venture out much beyond our own county.

Most students are low income and/or first generation college students and know very little about the college process.

With support from myself and the rest of the staff here at our school, many of our current seniors are going on to a 2-year or 4-year college or technical school.

My Project

We have spent this past year working with the seniors, to ensure that they have the necessary resources, tools, knowledge, and support to prepare for and to enroll in college or trade school. Many of the seniors have been working hard and are heading off for college or trade school this Fall.

For most of our students, financing their post-secondary education is challenging to say the least.

We would like to celebrate their accomplishments with gifts that will help them along the way. We will hold an all-school assembly in May called Decision Day. The community will be invited to attend. This event will promote college as well as the importance of making a decision, setting goals, and obtaining those goals.
