Mississippi Education Connection | High School Senior Day
For the most people high school is something they remember for the rest of their lives, especially those last couple of months, but, for the graduating class of 2020, these times will be remembered much differently. Today we’re celebrating our Mississippi high school seniors and sitting down with three graduates to talk about the impact of COVID-19 on their senior year. Plus, listen as seniors from around the state share messages with their peers in our senior spotlight.
Tips of the Week for High School Seniors
- Diversify your skills. There are some skill sets that have become more marketable than before because of COVID-19. See which ones you have and fine tune them.
- Make the most of your summer before before college. It's been a stressful and uncertain past few months. So, relax and enjoy the summer, making the necessary preparations but don't get overwhelmed. As long as you are ready with your technology, the colleges and universities are awaiting you with huge welcomes. They are prepared.
- Get involved. Stay involved, with your home community and your new school community. You learn new skills when you volunteer and you build your network.
