Excitement builds as students decide where to spend their next few years. Often times it’s a family decision.

“As a senior, I have already done all the hard work. I have applied to CCD and Metro. For now, I have not been accepted to any of these colleges,” said Tristan Flamenco (12). Flamenco isn’t ready to give up and knows he will land somewhere he can get a quality education.

Senior Ikaika Gonzalez will be the first in his family to go to college, “I have received help from my football coach. At first, it was kinda hard to get accepted to college. I have been accepted to Chadron. I’m going to college for journalism and photography. My family is supportive but I’m going to be the first one out the family to go to college,” said Gonzalez.

These seniors are setting a great example for the up and coming students who want to get a degree, “I am going to work hard, as well to make sure that my grades stay as high as possible. In order to make sure that I get into Harvard or Stanford,” said Santiago Cisneros (9).
