College, trade school, work, the future. How can we help graduating high school students navigate the transition into the next phase of life? Harry Hawkins explores this issue with guests Janell Thom Schneider, counselor at Oregon High School, and Andrea Jones, multicultural student coordinator at James Madison Memorial High School. They reflect on their experiences working with high school students and offer practical suggestions for student success, including starting freshman year, applying for scholarships, acknowledging diversity, and parent involvement.
