Again, the spring months are here bringing with them joy and excitement, for they mean school will soon be out for summer vacation. But for about 180 students, this means the end of their school days. These 180 students are seniors and they, like each class before them, will say good-bye to their school days.
Graduating from high school brings added responsibilities to you that you yourself, not your mother and father, must accept.
The shoe you step into after graduation is your choosing. You should make sure that the shoe is the right one for you.
In order to get the right shoe, shop around. In other words, start looking into professions you like when you are a freshman or sophomore and choose one you like best.
After you have chosen one, select which offers the training of your profession. Thus, you will have made a step toward your future.
Out of these 180 seniors, approximately 100 really know what they will do after graduation.
When will these 80 decide? Probably someone else will decide for them; some will be in Vietnam, others doing nothing; a few of these 80 will see how close it really is to the end of their high school days and jump head first into something they know nothing of.
So, my advice to you freshmen, sophomores and juniors, is make up your mind about the future you want, now. Don’t wait until you are approaching the man to shake his hand and reach for your diploma to decide.
