SRHS Seniors Honored At Pathfinders

Seminole Ridge High School seniors Sarah Festner Brogan and Wayne Selogy placed third in their achievement categories at the Palm Beach Post Pathfinders Award ceremony on May 7.

Selogy took the bronze in Forensics/Speech, while Brogan earned honors in the Reach for Excellence category. Each will receive a scholarship award of $2,500.

In the Palm Beach Post Pathfinders program, nearly 50 high schools from Palm Beach and Martin counties nominate seniors each year to compete for scholarship funds.

Since the program’s inception in 1984, more than $2.25 million has been awarded.

This year’s Pathfinders competition saw the largest number of students nominated, with more than 600 of the area’s best seniors competing. Each is interviewed by a panel of judges who are experts in one of the 18 program categories.

Coffee Talk with Freshman Parents — The SRHS guidance department invites the parents of freshman students to “Coffee Talk” on Wednesday, May 28 from 7:45 to 8:30 a.m. in the media center. Topics of discussion will include dual enrollment and credit recovery opportunities.

Dual enrollment is a program that allows high school students to simultaneously earn both high school and college credit by taking college courses. Students must take the ACT, SAT or PERT and have a cumulative 3.0 GPA in order to qualify. Students must also meet any additional admission criteria set by Palm Beach State College or Florida Atlantic University.

Parents, if your children have failed one or more core classes, it is imperative that you enroll them as soon as possible in courses to begin the credit recovery process. Failing required classes will cause students to become “off track” for graduation, but credit recovery opportunities are available.

Refreshments will be served. RSVP to the guidance office at (561) 422-2610 or e-mail
