Students all across the country took time out of their school day to celebrate each other’s decision for after high school plans on May 1. This event is known as National College Decision Day, otherwise also known as signing day, and takes place the first day of May. This is not only a day to show off your decision, but it is the last official day for students to commit to colleges.

While a lot of the students at decision day have the typical four-year college university they are repping, other people’s after high school decision was many other things. There were numerous students whose plans consisted of trade school, cosmetology school, workforce, or joined the armed forces. 

What are your after high school plans?

Victoria Shelton is planning to attend cosmetology school at The Salon Professional Academy and is looking to become a hairstylist after her schooling.

“I decided this route because I truly love this industry and love working with people,” Shelton said.

Reese Westhoff is attending Mizzou and is planning to major in business and minor in film production. When she graduates Mizzou, she isn’t quite sure, but knows she wants to do something in film.

“I chose this route because I wanted to stay in state to save money, but also wanted the bigger college feel that Mizzou gives,” Westhoff said. 

Allison Goldstein is planning to attend EMT school and then go to paramedic school after. When done with all her school, she is looking to become a paramedic.

“I chose this route because I always wanted to do something medical, but felt the hospital wasn’t up my alley and so I looked into being a paramedic and really enjoyed it,” Goldstein said. 

This event held during SOAR time was filled with a bunch of fun activities to celebrate some of the seniors’ last weeks here. When you walked in, you could choose a tiny banner to write your name and your decision on, and you were also given a foam finger of the color of what school you were planning to attend. There was also pizza and refreshments that you could enjoy while mingling, fun backdrops and props you could take pictures with, a button making station that you could put your school on, and then a map where you could mark where you’re going. 

All in all, this was a really good event for seniors’ to attend and commemorate the new chapter of life they’re soon going to be experiencing.
