Students get serious about planning their future
Juniors and seniors at the high school spent the day on Wednesday thinking about their "game plan" after high school. More than 220 students participated in field trips to 7 local colleges and universities, and another 120 students virtually visited 8 schools across the country. Additionally, 10 students met with military representatives.
Participating students were able to learn about scholarships opportunities, how to apply for student loans and even applied to college on-the-spot. Of 20 students who visited Iowa State virtually, 12 applied and 5 were accepted immediately. Kids also got to explore trade and manufacturing careers and more. See more photos on Facebook.
