Students at a Henderson middle school got a jump on college with an event Wednesday called "I’m Going to College."
Kids at Bob Miller Middle School wore shirts highlighting the college or university they want to attend after high school. The staff also wore shirts from the college or university they attended.
It was all part of an effort to get kids to look ahead to what comes after high school and make the effort needed to stay on track for higher education. The message got through to eighth grader Rakan Sayegh.
"It is really important to the school because it is good for kids to know ahead of time what college they want to go to, what elective they want to do and their career choices," Sayegh said.
The teachers also took Wednesday to talk about the education experience they had.
