GCS Class of 2020 joins College Decision Day

GUILFORD COUNTY – As Guilford County Schools seniors look to the future, more than 80 students from 20 high schools submitted videos in honor of College Decision Day on May 1.

May 1 traditionally is the date by which graduating seniors must choose which college they will attend in the fall.

This year, since students are not in schools, GCS put out the call for graduates to submit videos announcing their college plans. These videos can be seen on the district’s YouTube channel and will be shared on the district’s other social media platforms and on GCSTV.

“It’s important for our seniors to know that the community celebrates their incredible achievements,” said Sharon Contreras, GCS superintendent. “We are proud of the accomplishments of the Class of 2020, and the nation’s colleges and universities will soon learn what we already know: GCS seniors are exceptionally prepared for their futures.”

The videos show GCS students have a wide range of college plans. The Class of 2020 will head to North Carolina State University, Morehouse College, Harvard University, the Fashion Institute of Technology, University of North Carolina at Charlotte, North Carolina A&T State University, Appalachian State University, UNC-Chapel Hill, Guilford College, UNCG and UNC School of the Arts, just to name a few.

Seniors can still complete the FAFSA application for help paying for college and continue to share their college plans on social media with the hashtag #GCSGradsSoar2020.
