Success in High School

Last May, Megan Colford penned a column, A Senior’s Perspective: Success in High School, for her high school paper. She argues very effectively that the way to be successful in high school is not to focus relentlessly on pleasing colleges, but to do things you love, to create stories to tell, and to figure out who and what makes you happy. It has since been republished on the Challenge Success blog, and I hope students and parents will give it a read.

And lest any naysayers write her off as a kid whose approach just shows a lack of ambition, according to Google, Megan is currently in college.

At Georgetown.
