The Career & College Center is Offering Information on ideas for College

The Career & College Center is hosting three upcoming community panels on Monday, May 2, Monday, May 9, and Wednesday, May 11.  The sessions will explore the value of a college education, and will present ideas and information about different higher education options that students can consider.   All three panels are open to the community and parents.   Each session will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Arcata High School library.  


Here are the specifics:

The Monday, May 2 panel is targeted to parents of our college bound students.  The purpose is to discuss how to make the transition from high school to college easier for students and families.  Five Arcata and McKinleyville High School parents, who have freshmen in college this year, will share their insight, ideas, and perspective about what they have learned from their own experiences.  Mary Bill, UC Davis parent, Janna Cox, HSU parent, Steve McHaney, Cal Poly SLO parent, Stephanie Perrett, University of Oregon parent, and Greg Rowe, Cabrillo College parent will be the guest panelists.  


The Monday, May 9 panel will explore the opportunities that College of the Redwoods and Humboldt State University offers to students.  HSU President Lisa Rossbacher, C.R. President Keith Snowflamer, and NHUHSD Superintendent Chris Hartley will discuss their views about the value of going to college, ideas about career planning for high school students, and will explore the opportunities and programs that students can consider by going to school locally at C.R. and HSU.  


The Wednesday, May 11 panel will focus on the recruitment process for playing college level athletics.  Representatives from the Humboldt Wild AAU Basketball program will present information and answer questions about how a high school student athlete can pursue their goal of playing college level sports.   Attendees will learn about NCAA regulations, how to communicate with coaches, and other tips to pursue a goal of competing in college athletics.

School Motto Sign

The school motto sign, donated to Town School by the class of 1954, is back up! Robert Wilson and John Miller hung the sign up in the library this Wednesday. The sign used to be in the Town School auditorium. It was taken down when the school was demolished. It is nice to have it back up at our school. The motto is, "We'll follow the Path to Success" Come in the library and see it for yourself!

Mrs. Reveles and Mr. Wilson
