Juniors and their parents attended the counseling department’s College Night to learn about the college application process and scholarships.

College counselor, Randy Fong, and junior counselor Annaliza Miyashiro spoke about the Naviance online site and how to applying for college and scholarships.

Miyashiro said, “The entire purpose of College Night was to let parents be familiar with Naviance. It was also to inform the students about the application process and what to do now as juniors to get ready for college.”

Fong and Miyashiro stressed the importance of grades and participating in extracurricular activities and urged students to begin setting up their personal resumes.

Junior Shayla Trinidad said, “This college meeting made me realize that college is real soon and in a matter of time I will be applying. It also made me think about my grades and motivated me to do better in these next two years.”

Junior Noelle Yamamoto learned something new. “I haven’t really thought about the urgency of setting up my personal resume, but this meeting made me realize what colleges look for, making me want to begin adding information to my resume as soon as possible.”

College night featured guest speakers, including a Jostens’ representative who gave information about rings for the Junior Ring ceremony and a parent about Project Grad.
