Seniors celebrate Decision Day
Floresville High School held its third Decision Day ceremony on May 22 to honor the senior class and celebrate those who have committed to attend a college/university or enlist in the military.
Decision Day is an event hosted on campuses across the state of Texas and around the country. Its purpose is to engage the community as seniors announce for the first time in front of their peers, teachers, and counselors what their plans are for after graduation. The celebration is a key component of the Advise TX program and is organized by each partner high school’s college advisor to inspire students to continue their post-secondary education.
During the ceremony, students signed a Commitment Card Pledge to enroll and graduate from college, complete their military contracts, or be successful in the work force. Out of Floresville’s entire senior class, 175 students are committed to attending college, five will be attending technical schools, 12 are joining the military, and 36 are joining the work force.
After the ceremony, students going on to college had the opportunity to meet with representatives from their future institutions. Prizes were given away as well, and Principal Sandra Galinzoga addressed the senior class at the end of the ceremony.
