Celebrating Stellar Seniors

In some ways it’s almost hard to believe it’s the middle of May already! It’s the time of year that students (and teachers in some cases) are perhaps counting down the days until the end of the school year. We feel fortunate to get to work with students across the country, so we do know there is a wide range of dates for the end of school starting next week and ranging into mid to late June.

As the school year winds down, for some it’s their last year of high school and they will be graduating. And we now even have some of our students who are now finishing their undergrad!  We want to celebrate all the seniors we’ve had the honor of working with. We’ve asked them to share their info with us and for those that do, you’ll see us posting on Saturdays, for a few weeks, across our social media channels (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram - @HigherOrbits) and also on LinkedIn about what is next in their journey. (By the way, if you are a Senior who has been part of a Higher Orbits program and you haven’t yet shared your info, please reach out! We’d love to hear from you! We’d like to celebrate you!)

We hope you’ll follow along on #SpotlightSaturday in the coming weeks to join us in congratulating and cheering on these stellar students!

There are students headed to study STEM, 2 students who met through Higher Orbits and are from different parts of the country who will be roommates at college, and one of our original Go For Launch! students is finishing his undergrad and headed to Med School! But wait… there’s more! You’ll have to check out the posts to find out!

Join us for #SpotlightSaturday….
