“We have one of the best school districts academically,” said City Manager Corey Schmidt. “I think that our teachers, counselors, and principals really make the effort for the students to succeed.”
Mayor Pro-Tem John Bisard lauded the school’s counselors. “Mrs. (Michelle) Greenleaf is fantastic at providing the students with resources such as Scholastic Assessment Test prepping, ‘one on one’ meetings, and even promoting college tours,” he said.
College admissions toughen
College admissions is becoming more intense as students struggle to make their application stand out.
“Helping students (is) my priority, it’s what I love to do,” said Greenleaf, a Williamston High School counselor. “While helping them get into college is a priority, their mental health is as well. It is a stressful time for students, we have all been there, providing them with resources to help them prepare and reduce their stress while increasing their confidence.”
