While Natomas Pacific Pathways Prep’s 9th, 10th and 11th graders took the PSAT Wednesday, the senior class was kept busy with activities geared toward their futures.

Sacramento Vice Mayor Angelique Ashby kicked off the day sharing her experiences during college and how she became the city council member who represents Natomas. Ashby also talked to students about ways they could get involved in the Natomas community and gave seniors advice on possible senior projects.

The day included a talk by upperclassmen counselor Shelly Gorman about ways for students to stress less about college. Gorman went over the California State University and University of California application process, and showed students how to submit test scores and grades to colleges.

The senior advisers also shared their personal stories about how and where they went to college, as well as lessons they learned during the experience a picking a school.

“It’s more important to find a school that is a better fit for you than to care about what other people will think,” adviser Robert Hagarty said.

The day’s activities ended with the senior barbecue hosted by the advisers.
