Thousands of high school seniors are facing crunch time as they try to make the right choice for college and then find a way to pay for it. WKYC followed two young women, one from the city of Cleveland, one suburban Macedonia, and asked them to share their stories.
With light snow falling on a cold March morning, Cleveland High School Senior Tavon Horn is heading to school. The high school senior will walk more than a mile to catch her RTA bus that takes her to “facing future new tech” high school on the city’s near west side. Tavon is rehearsing her senior project presentation.
Her teacher inquires. “What kind of nursing do you want to specialize in?” Tavon responds, “I want to specialize in registered nursing as far as working with adults, maybe the elderly and maybe a few children.”
