Video Messages From EHHS Alumni, Staff Encourage Seniors During Virtual College Decision Week 2021
Eastern Hills High School is enlisting campus staff, alumni and recent college grads to encourage high school seniors who are just months away from embarking on their own college journey this week. This week the school posted video messages to its social media pages as part of the school’s Virtual College Decision Week 2021 campaign.
The Fort Worth ISD, in collaboration with multiple partners, is observing Virtual College Decision Week 2021, May 3-7. Throughout the week high school seniors are encouraged to post photos and videos on social media highlighting their post-secondary choices.
At the beginning of the week,in short videos dubbed “Motivational Monday,” four EHHS alumni encouraged seniors to have goals and push toward their goals. They also shared stories about their college experiences, the opportunities college offers, and the role Eastern Hills High played in who they are today.
“We think motivational campaigns are great, but they're even better when they're coming from our alumni and community. We thought it was important for our students to see members of their community graduating and going off to college,” Principal Katrina Smith said. “We also knew it was important to show our students that Eastern Hills graduates do transition to great things and that their possibilities are endless.”
On Thursday, the videos from alumni were followed by eight additional messages from EHHS staff members on the school’s social media pages. Staff congratulated the Class of 2021 and offered the seniors encouragement and well wishes.
Mrs. Smith said that the motivational videos will continue through Decision Day on May 20. On that day the school will have “10-15 colleges represented for students who have committed, as well as representatives from various careers and the military,” she said.
“We are using this Decision Week as a countdown of events for our students to get excited for our Decision Day,” Mrs. Smith said.
