Every year the state of Indiana designates a week to promote after high school options. College Go Week is typically celebrated Sept. 25-29, but SHS will be celebrating it the week of Sept. 18-22 because of football homecoming.
On Monday, Sept. 18, it is Military Appreciation day and students are welcome to bring any veterans to come eat lunch with them, but they must pre register with Mrs. Vires before doing so.
On Tuesday, Sept. 19 it is Workforce Day where various employers will set up in the Commons during lunch hours to talk to students interested in those careers. Staff is also encouraged to shared their workforce stories during advisory.
On Wednesday Sept. 20 it is Business Day. Local business owners are invited to set up during lunch hours for students to talk to about that pathway.
Thursday, Sept. 21 is College Logo Day. Students and staff are encouraged to wear college apparel. Local colleges are invited to set up in the commons. That night at 6-7:30 seniors are encouraged to go to Hanover for a regional college fair at Horner Center on Hanover College Campus.
Friday, Sept. 22 is Dress for Success Day where students dress as if they’re going to a job interview.
“The main idea is for us to share different avenues that students have after they leave SHS. That’s why we dedicate each day to different careers to highlight their choices after high school,” said Mrs. Shannon Mount, career counselor.
Several colleges in Indiana waive their college application fees during College Go Week, which means no cost for a college application. The list of colleges are on the Counselor Corner webpage on the SHS website. Seniors applying to colleges are strongly encouraged to look at the list to save a lot of money. Mrs. Mount made sure to note that all senior parents and students were sent this information.
“If people would put in these applications on the specified times, they would save a lot of money,” said Mrs. Mount.
