Every four years, we are reminded that it’s time once again for the Olympic games. It’s a wonderful time to join in the celebration of the accomplishments of these athletes, as they achieve their personal goals. While sharing their spotlight, we learn about their dedication to their goals, and how they overcame challenges working with their various coaches and trainers. We learn how they competed in many trial events before they stepped onto the big stage at the Olympic games. They had set a goal and prepared many years in advance to arrive at these games, and they knew at each point on their prequalifying checklist of trial events, what needed to be done in order to get them to the games.

Not unlike these Olympic athletes, there are high school seniors who are about to graduate from high school in only three months. They have been preparing to attend college since their freshman year in high school. They have set a goal, and have been working with their school counselors as their personal coaches and trainers, to get first to their high school graduation, while also becoming fully prepared to attend college and begin the career of their choice. They certainly have faced their trials along the way, testing their skills and abilities, very similar to these Olympic athletes. Soon, they will cross the stage at their high school commencement ceremony, savoring the moment briefly, and then moving on to the next trial on their checklist, which is to get into college, and to compete at the next level academically.
