Seniors receive guidance with college resumes, essays, applications

Mrs. Braund works with a senior, tweaking his college essay.

Applying for college is an overwhelming task and the counseling department works very hard to make the process as easy as possible for all students - Senior Night, Website, College Visits to MRHS, College 411 Night/Junior Night, Scholarship Newsletter, and Financial Aid Night. The feedback that the counseling department received last year from the Class of 2013 was that they could have used more guidance with resume and essay writing. The counseling department had a brainstorming session and made the decision to provide resume and essay writing resources to the Class of 2014 and it was a HUGE success!!

Marvin Ridge High school would like to thank Mrs. Giovanna Braund and Mrs. Jennifer Burns for volunteering their time this week to help our students. Ms. Braund is a former Assistant Director of Admissions at the University of Florida and Ms. Burns is a Vice President in Global Human Resources at Bank of America; both have worked extensively on reading resumes and essays in these positions. It has commonly been asked by our students if we could provide a resource for them to have someone read and proof their admissions information.

Mrs. Braund and Mrs. Burns volunteered to come to our guidance office after school. They read and provided suggestions to students on their essays and resumes on Tuesday-Thursday, September 10-12. We hope to offer future sessions…stay tuned!
