Jenks High School Holds Inaugural Senior Conference at OSU-Tulsa
The College and Career Office at Jenks High School, in conjunction with the Jenks Public Schools Foundation, helped hundreds of senior students to be better prepared for the future during the inaugural "PrepYou" Senior Conference at OSU-Tulsa.
After an opening presentation from former Jenks football coach, Allan Trimble, the seniors traveled to the campus of OSU-Tulsa to attend sessions focused on college and career readiness, “adulting 101,” and networking. Examples of topics included: Choosing A Career, Making Social Media Work For You, Managing College Financial Aid, and Making Personal Finance Decisions. Speakers from a variety of community organizations, businesses, and educational institutions shared their insights with students.
“This Senior Conference was an amazing opportunity for our students to not only think about the next phases of their life, but to receive practical tips and training on how to succeed and thrive in those phases,” stated Eric Fox, Associate Principal at Jenks High School. “We are grateful for the financial support of the Jenks Public Schools Foundation to be able to provide this premiere event as we help prepare our seniors for the opportunities that lie ahead.”
