Demon Senior Story- What’s the Next Chapter?


Greenway’s seniors will have to enter “the real world” once they walk down the aisle during graduation. The question is where will they all go?

“So far [this year] I’ve seen 300 seniors,” College and Career Specialist Mrs. Goguen said.


“The universities come and visit once a month to share information about their schools. The military comes to show what [their program is] like and to talk to the students who don’t want to go to a university. Community colleges come once a month and speak to the students [who are] not interested in the military or starting at a university. It is what the colleges want to show the students,” Mrs. Goguen said.

What career fields are the most and least popular among the seniors? “The medical field might be [the most popular] because they make the most money,” Mrs. Goguen said.

“Being a teacher [must be the least popular] because they don’t make a lot of money,” Mrs. Goguen said.

“I would like to be a physicist’s assistant [because] I like helping people. To get there, I’ll go to college, work hard, and be determined,” Senior Jada Pittman (pictured below) said.

“I’m going to be a doctor for the homeless. I’ll go to community college, transfer to ASU, then go to medical school because I want to be in the medical field, and I know some of the equipment used,”  Senior Jayden Lopez-Cecil said.

“I want to be a makeup artist. I’m going to go to cosmetology school. I like it because I am good at it, and it is fun,” Senior Starr Hughes (pictured below) said.

“[I want to be a] child psychiatrist. I want to be able to [impact people], like the psychiatrist in my life has impacted me. I have to graduate and work a few jobs to pay for medical school, then continue to save up for school. It will take me about 10 years,” Senior Clarissa Follmar (pictured below) said.

There are so many paths out there for Demons to travel.  From the military to going to culinary school to going to a university, the choices are limitless.  Greenway seniors will be ready to make their mark on society.
