As the end of the school year draws nearer, so does the end of the senior class’s high school run. With graduation within reach, the guidance counselors have begun one-on-one exit interviews with each member of the senior class.
“My counselor is [Mrs. Bowman, Guidance,] and she asked me what my plans were for after high school. I told her my plans, which are that I’ve decided not to go to college. She was really accepting and made sure that even if those were my plans that I should still do FAFSA and apply. During the exit interview she listened to me ramble about my dreams and how I plan to run my own business and work towards that. She was really happy for me, and she told me if I need anything to contact her and to stay in contact,” Angelina Kapetanov (12) said.
At the end of the meeting, each student is given a file of their work from their time with the school corporation. For many students, this dates back as far as kindergarten or preschool.
“I thought it was super cute [seeing my old work]. It’s interesting looking back on past work and seeing how far I’ve come. I enjoy knowing that there’s a little memento you get at the end of your journey,” Nicole Boulazeris (12) said.
