Obstacles are things a person sees when he takes his eyes off his goal.

On this day –  At 8:45 a.m. on a clear Tuesday morning, an American Airlines Boeing 767 loaded with 20,000 gallons of jet fuel crashes into the north tower of the World Trade Center in New York City. The impact left a gaping, burning hole near the 80th floor of the 110-story skyscraper, instantly killing hundreds of people and trapping hundreds more in higher floors.
As the evacuation of the tower and its twin got underway, television cameras broadcasted live images of what initially appeared to be a freak accident. Then, 18 minutes after the first plane hit, a second Boeing 767–United Airlines Flight 175–appeared out of the sky, turned sharply
toward the World Trade Center, and sliced into the south tower at about the 60th floor. The collision caused a massive explosion that showered burning debris over surrounding buildings and the streets below. America was under attack.

As seniors are actively completing their admissions applications, there are lots of benefits in meeting the college representatives where admission is desired.  Networking with the reps can be advantageous throughout the admissions and scholarship process the next few months.

For juniors, meeting college admission reps is the best introduction to your college planning.  These presentations also help you know what questions to ask as you learn about individual colleges and universities.

ALL JUNIORS and SENIORS must submit a signed teacher permission slip to the Guidance Office at least one day in advance of a college presentation.  (Sign up slips are in the Guidance Office.)** The following institutions will be sending reps to meet juniors and seniors at CCHS this week:
Mon 9/11 –

  • Kenyon College (OH) @ 2nd period
  • Michigan State University @ 3rd period
  • University of Southern California @ 5th period (C/D lunches)

Thurs 9/14 –

Friday 9/15 –
