5/2/18 - On Tuesday, May 1, Howell High School celebrated Decision Day. Decision Day honored the school’s seniors and their postsecondary educational plans and encouraged younger students to prepare early for their postsecondary education. The celebration included a parade of seniors holding signs representing their postsecondary education choices and a school-wide assembly attended by the district’s eighth-grade students and fifth-grade students from Voyager Elementary and Challenger Elementary. The event included two guest speakers, Sarah Anthony, Michigan College Access Network deputy director for partnership and advocacy and Kate Melcher, Buddy to Buddy Volunteer Veteran Program program manager.

This fall, students from Howell will begin their postsecondary education at colleges and universities around the country including Harvard, Michigan State University, The University of Michigan, The Air Force Academy and the California Institute of Technology. Other students plan to join the armed forces, pursue an apprenticeship or enter the workforce after graduation.

“Decision Day is a way for us to celebrate our senior class and their postsecondary education choices. As a school, district and community, we are incredibly proud of the Class of 2018 for continuing their education after Howell High School,” said Lisa O’Connor, Howell High School assistant principal.

Decision Day is the third event that Howell High School has hosted to help promote a college-going culture. In the fall, students participated in College Application Month, where all seniors were encouraged to apply to at least one college. The school also held a College Cash Campaign which taught students and parents about the various forms of financial aid available to help pay for college.
