On Tuesday, December 10, the Class of 2014 visited the campuses of several area colleges and universities. The trip was organized by the YHS Guidance Office and funded by a state grant. These grant-funded college visits are aimed at inspiring students to aim high and to begin planning for their education after high school early. On this trip, all seniors visited either UNO, UNK or SECC. Students and the teachers of senior students toured the campuses, got an insider's view of student life and ate in the campus cafeteria. Those students on the UNO visit were escorted by YHS alum Naomi Siem, who now works in admissions at UNO.
Students making the trip returned with increased awareness of college life and the opportunities available to them in their future. Future trips are planned for the junior, sophomore and freshmen classes during second semester.
