College Success for WSA Class of 2017

May 19, 2017
By Susan Trower

WSA Class of 2017 - Mark Gsellman photoThe Class of 2017 graduates on May 19, and then they will be heading in many different directions to colleges here in the United States and abroad.  Students and their families spent much time over the last couple years researching, visiting campuses, and consulting with Mrs. Freeman, WSA's College Counselor, then sent off applicaions and essays to colleges and universities last fall.  Some of the eagerly awaited acceptance letters and scholarship offers came in December, but most arrived in letters and email this spring.

On Monday, May 8 - College Declaration Day at WSA - the members of the Class of 2017 announced their choices to WSA students and staff and signed the pennants of the colleges where they intend to enroll this fall.
