The annual Spring Senior Seminar was held Wednesday, April 25, 2018. The purpose of this unique day is to present seniors with information about and connections to community resources as they transition to "the real world". Several sessions were held with community members and school faculty. Lunch was graciously provided by Larry Paulsen and served by Dawson Area Development, who also coordinated luncheon participants who met with students interested in pursuing those fields.
The organizers would like to sincerely thank all the community people willing to give their time and experiences for the opportunity at success for our Seniors!
