While presenting I saw quite a few SWAP students (shout out to Priscilla here!) – and heard ‘hey, there’s the SWAP lady’ as I walked through the halls.

SWAP students – we’ve discussed a lot of the material in this presentation — you all have it in you to be prepared, be community leaders, be great team leaders and to succeed!  Keep your eye on the prize – successful careers – as you plan your academics for technical, two-year and four-year college admissions – and for your future employers!
