On Wednesday, May 1, Howell High School celebrated its third annual College Decision Day. College Decision Day celebrates the school’s seniors for their post-secondary educational plans and encourages younger students to prepare early for post-secondary education. The celebration included a parade of seniors holding signs representing their post-secondary education choice and guest speakers. Students from Howell High School, Highlander Way Middle School, Parker Middle School and several of the district’s elementary schools attended the event.
In the fall students from Howell will begin their post-secondary education at schools including The University of Michigan, Michigan State University, the University of Central Florida, the University of Wisconsin, and Central Michigan University. Other students plan to join the armed forces or enter the workforce after graduation.
College Decision Day is the third event that Howell High School has hosted to help promote a college-going culture. In the fall seniors participated in College Application Month, where all seniors were encouraged to apply to at least one college. The school also held a College Cash Campaign which taught students and parent about the various forms of financial aid available to help pay for college and promoted completing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
