Ms. Mandy McTavish, our new Career and College Readiness Coordinator, can’t wait to help our Warrior student body get on the right path towards college and success.
McTavish has been counseling for eight years and reveals that she is very passionate about her job and dedicating her career to helping students.
McTavish said, “I’ve always loved helping students figure out how to solve their problems.”
Having grown up in an underprivileged home herself, she knows how difficult these goals might seem for some of us.
“When you [students] do have a goal and make a plan, it’s easy to be guided,” said McTavish.
Already, McTavish professes her love for Pueblo because our diversity and hopes to guide each student towards a better future.
She has advice for our students: “Find your passion, find out what you love, and I’ll help you get there.”
Recently, on Wednesday, September 14, McTavish helped to coordinate and host the 2016 College Fall Tour held in the South Gym, inviting all Pueblo seniors to talk to more than a dozen organizations (college, universities and a few military branches) regarding their post-high school careers. She also organized the “Tri-Universities” presentation on September 20 in which Arizona’s three universities spoke to seniors as well as offering them brochures and information about their colleges.
“I know that a lot of our seniors are scared about going out in the real world, but the earlier that our seniors know where they’re going, the more they can enjoy the rest of their high school days,” McTavish said.
She added, “Every senior is capable of greatness in their futures.”
