Class of 2024
It is time to be thinking about the transition plan after high school.
LRHS graduates have many great options: immediate employment, military enlistment, technical training, or degree attainment at a 2-year or 4-year college. Application Month occurs in October of the senior year so exploring these options should be happening now. When counselors met with juniors during scheduling this spring, many juniors reported that they had not started the process yet.
On May 17th, we are taking all juniors on a field trip to tour a local college. The goal is to allow students the opportunity to be on campus, tour facilities, learn about how the college admission process works, and try out a campus dining hall.
Juniors will be attending their first-period class on Wednesday. Once that class is over, juniors will meet in the Commons to get organized for the bus ride to MSU. Students need to be dressed for a field trip where they will be inside and outside and with shoes comfortable for walking. LRHS and the MSU College of Business are splitting the cost of lunch so every junior will have a free lunch in the Blair Shannon Dining Hall.
We are hopeful this tour will spark curiosity and juniors will use the summer to explore transition options that might be right for them after high school. It is important to begin planning before the senior year begins.
Special thanks to Dr. David Meinert, Dean of the College of Business for supporting our tour during a busy time on MSU’s campus.
