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.

Peer Power is an enrichment program that helps students succeed both inside and outside the classroom.  This description alone does not serve the program justice because it does so much more.  Peer Power has taught me many life lessons and opened so many doors for me.  Peer Power allows individuals, both adults and adolescents, to partake in activities that he or she may not be accustomed to.  The program aided me in knowing that there is so much in the world to learn, see, and experience.  Over these past six years, the program has bought me laughter, knowledge, and most importantly, comradery.  I enjoy seeing the faces of the program both in the office and outside as well.  These faces that are seen throughout the program are not just my coworkers, but my Peer Power Family.  It happened without me knowing it and I would not change it for the world.  Peer Power is the home where I learned that nothing is impossible, the home where dreams come true, and the home where my heart is.  Although I am out working, earning degrees, and living life, I will never forget my beginning with Peer Power.  As I grow, Peer Power grows, as I achieve, Peer Power achieves, and as I live, Peer Power lives through me.
