West Oso High School
"The challenge has greatly impacted our students positively by providing important information and resources needed for college. One of our favorite things about the challenge is the excitement of competing with one another for the most points while gaining knowledge at the same time.
The best method we’ve used to spread the word about the challenge was interacting amongst one another in our college 101 classes. The most difficult thing we faced in this challenge was finding and/or completing some articles, videos, and quizzes to give us more points.
Some skills our team has developed are better communication and motivation. We are all most proud of coming together as a team and working on getting as much points as we could while interacting and gaining information. We all believe one of the biggest motivations we have in graduation high school is looking forward to our future and knowing all our hard work and dedication will truly pay off.
We all believe our dream college is wherever we will receive the best program for the career field we want to go into. We like how the website provides us with plenty of information and resources regarding college, it is very helpful.
We as the Graduate for Más Challenge Ambassadors, take pride in all we can do to help one another succeed. We are truly lucky to have Ms. Aguirre helping us and finding ways for us to make some extra money while learning at the same time.
We want to thank you for letting us participate and receive all of the free things we can get. It has been a great experience."
