Students at Whitehaven High School had some fun as they announced which colleges they’ll attend.

Many of those students received scholarship offers for academics, so the school wanted to make sure their decisions were announced with all the fanfare of star athletes on Thursday.

As family, friends and teachers watched, each student took the stage to reveal which college they will be attending in the fall.

This is the third year Whitehaven has hosted Academic Signing Day.

I want to make my future TEN TIMES BETTER!

At age fifteen, I was introduced to Mr. Charles McVean and the Peer Power Foundation.  Peer Power provided my first job as well as endless opportunities throughout high school and college.  The Foundation set very high standards for me as a student, a tutor, and leader.  Peer Power taught me the value of not only excelling academically, but how to be a model citizen and consistently improve the whole person.  Through Peer Power, I learned the value of helping others and how to give back to the community in other ways.  Throughout my four years at Georgetown, I have made it my goal to give back to the community.  The high expectations set by Peer Power have aided me in achieving my goals in receiving a dual degree in International Politics and International Economics.  I will soon start a career in government sciences.  I know that I would not have made it this far without the direction given to me from Peer Power.
