Preparing our Youth: A Petition SUPPORTING HSHS COLLEGE AND CAREER CENTER
PSA: CALLING ALL CURRENT AND FORMER SPRINGERS!!!!! ALL those people who say “ONCE A SPRINGER ALWAYS A SPRINGER!” that they love Highland Springs High School.......Your attention is requested.
Recently, I learned that due to a strained budget and limited resources, Highland Springs HS will be disbanding the College and Career position and it’s resources. I don’t know about many of you but I would not be where I am today if it were not for Mrs. Syble Jennings Pemberton and the College and Career Center; the help with applications, financial aid, providing network opportunities and assisting with all those things that can be daunting with college. The assemblies and college tours, no matter how small everything contributed to my success and schooling!
This petition serves as support of NOT ceasing this resource at the school. Many of us wonder how we can give back. This is your chance.
We’re requesting letters as well to share your experience in high school if you have been helped through the College and Career center.
Success isn’t how far you got, but the distance you traveled from where you started. I started at Highland Springs like many of you. Who would we be without the resource or direction of the College and Career Center? HELP IF YOU CAN. FORWARD to ANYONE YOU KNOW THAT IS INTERESTED OR AFFILIATED WITH HSHS!
Please mail letters to:
