Grade 9 and 12 crews switched it up, with freshmen interviewing seniors with questions like: How have the choices you  made in 9th, 10th and 11th grades affected your options for colleges now?, What are your high school highlights, regrets, & advice for me?, and What excites you most about college?  Grade 9 students will be creating posters for each senior, in preparation for our 12/15 Annual 100% College-Bound College March!
