Class of 2019,
You are now seniors!! How exciting!! Cap and Gown pictures are coming up this month. ACT/SAT tests have been taken and perhaps a retake is scheduled. If you haven’t taken one of these tests already, it is time to sign up! Don’t put this off any longer. College application deadlines are right around the corner. UT Texas is December 1. Early application deadlines are in September and October. The summer months are nice and relaxing, but don’t let them waste away all your time. Be productive as you look forward to the future! And what a bright future it is!!
