It’s easy for students to feel lost in the sea of “to do’s” when it comes to having a successful high school career and being prepared for college. We often don’t seek the help we know we need, or we feel like we’re forgetting important factors in preparing for crossing into the adult/college atmosphere. However, it doesn’t have to be like this at all. Thanks to our counselors and guidance department especially, we have the resources we need to feel secure in our academic success.
“The guidance counselor’s’ goal is always to help you get to what you want,” guidance secretary Pam Waterford said. “Every student has a different story, and the counselors are here for them.”
Waterford recommends this vital tip to every high school student as they prepare for their future: Ask questions. Talk to people with experience, and know that it’s okay if you’re undecided about what you want to do. Communication is key, and don’t be afraid of it.
“When you mingle with people, you learn more about what you want to do and what you don’t want to do,” Waterford said. “It’s good to get all the information even if you don’t agree with it or it’s not something you would do. It’s something to consider, and it still helps you.”
