Where will my son or daughter go to college? What kind of person will he/she become, what will he/she do professionally? While it may not be traumatic, choosing a college and a profession is a serious matter and one that parents and children should make together. The planning needs to start early. The Comal Independent School District is helping in that process by establishing College Career Centers (CCC) at each high school Canyon and Smithson Valley. Both centers are open to students, staff, parents and the community at large. “The centers are one-stop family resources for college and career planning,” says Pamela Alderson, the district’s career guidance counselor. “The materials are there, or the centers’ facilitators will get the materials, so families can make sound decisions about high education.” The CCCs were established in March 1999 through a School to Career grant funded by the Alamo Workforce Development Inc. The centers are funded this year through an Alamo Tech Prep grant. Students can access universities, colleges, the College Board, and numerous other resources on-line. Hundres of college catalogs and videotapes also are available in the CCC. Of particular interest to parents is financial aid. Both CCCs can provide aid resources that parents can start accessing early. “I am here to work for the student and the family,” says Natalie Avalos, facilitator at Canyon High’s CCC. “If I don’t have the information they are looking for I will find it for them.” Avalos, and the CCC at Smithson Valley, provide interest inventories so students can determine which careers would fit their skills and personalities. The inventory is offered by the Discover software program through the American College Testing (ACT) service. Once a student knows which careers to focus on, he/she can prioritize the colleges that offer degree programs in those areas. Adam Hernandez, a junior at Canyon High, says the CCC is a great resource. “Til be back in here,” he said, after spending an hour exploring law enforcement as a career and the colleges he could attend to earn a degree in that area. Both CCCs are trying to reach high school students in their freshmen and sophomore years. In their infancy, their primary focus has been to reach all of the seniors and juniors. For more information, call 625-6251 (Canyon High) or 904-7273 (Smithson Valley High). District Troy Vaughn, a senior at Smithson Valley High, has received the Principal’s Leadership Award and will now compete in the national Principal’s Leadership Award (PLA) scholarship program sponsored by the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP). Vaughn’s selection was based on his leadership skills, service organization participation, academic performance, and employment experience. He is student council president, an Eagle Scout, member of the National Honor Society, and football and track teams.
