JSEC Survival Guide 2019-2020--10 Suggestions and 20 Must Knows

JSEC Staff, Journalist

Most students upon attending a new school or returning to their school have a plethora of questions and the JSEC Cav Chronicle (name of the JSEC Newspaper) Staff thought it best that we try to help all JSEC students out with a JSEC Survival Kit of sorts.   Before we give you a list of things you will want to start collecting and be aware of is our TOP 10 List for High School students to consider:

  1. Take time to think about what you would like to do: dream and imagine ideal careers.
  2. Challenge yourself in High School, but don’t overwhelm yourself.
  3. Work, volunteer, or otherwise, gain some experience.
  4. Get as much education as you can and also get involved: Join a Sport, Yearbook/Newspaper Committee, or other After/Before School Activity
  5. Talk with as many adults as possible about careers and colleges.
  6. Remember that everyone must follow his or her own path in life.
  7. People change; don’t feel locked into any college or career now.
  8. Don’t let anyone control your dreams and ambitions and always be who you are!
  9. It is never too early, nor too late, to get organized, and begin making plans.
  10. Never stop learning….read, grow, and expand your mind.
