Welcome back to school senior class of 2012 and congratulations once again to all of our subscribers from the class of 2011! It was a very moving experience to see you all graduate and we look forward to hearing from you.
As you have noticed the the College-Career Resource Center has moved and our blog has not been active this summer. We are now located in room 112 (former attendance office) and you will once again start getting emails with scholarships and college-related resources. We hope our absence has not stopped you from your scholarship and college search.
To begin with, below is a checklist for action items every senior should make sure to have completed by the end of October, to ensure plentiful college opportunities this year.
