Graphic of a lighthouse w red and white pillar Guidance - Mrs. Mezger

Welcome to 2019, as usual a time for change in our lives and a time for growth. It seems quite amazing to me as we enter the last semester of this 2018-2019 school year we should be looking forward to taking our grades to a new and higher level, look for ways to challenge ourselves mentally, and allow our bodies to find renewal in physical fitness.


Seniors, time to work hard on those scholarships, as the more scholarships earned through diligent work is the less money you pay for your college education. Remember if not planning on college, there are also plenty of options for you and all you have to do is ask Mrs. Mezger. There is still plenty of time for college visits, job shadows, and other virtual visits to help prepare you for college. Yes, everyone is scared of leaving the home they feel most comfortable, but this too, does pass.


Underclassmen continue to strive to do your best and set forth your best example of demonstrating good character. Remember in this world to always be kind and you will go far.


Thanks to all who bought fruit, meat/cheese from HTRS STARS, the monies will help to pay for their next student activity, Red/White game, June Jam, and our scholarships. Hopefully, we are helping to teach young people about civic responsibilities of belonging to a group.


Titan Mentoring, under the student leadership of Grace Kanel has had some exciting activities such a placemats for the Bloodmobile and Christmas cards and cookies. Grace has been working with words dealing with “filling their buckets” in kindness, joy, and giving.  Secretaries Journie Vaughan, Teddy Bohling, and Clarence Schuler all help to be sure the student engagement is happening in the classrooms!


Best wishes as you enter 2019, my light remains bright and willing to help those who want to help themselves! Mrs. Mezger

Trip to SCC in Milford

HTRS was a part of 352 students and 40 educators, parents, or paras that chose to attend the event for the day. Mr. Catlin and Mrs. Rogers both went on the trip also. Students left school at 6:45 and returned by 3:45 with a lot of knowledge and skills packed in between those hours! Milford will be seeing a new residence hall in 2019 and a new diesel facility in 2020. There are typically 200-250 grads in the spring term with 140 employers in the spring looking for good employees. But the need is much greater than the number of graduates that they can offer to the employers. These careers are all about finding your niche and allowing your passion and skill set to help find the right fit. 

The relationships that SCC Milford have with surrounding employers includes sign on bonuses, loan forgiveness, and many benefits for the employee. Two local employers talked with us about start salaries as well as what they are looking for in an employee. Those are the same characteristics that we attempt to teach our students each day - so do not give up! 

SCC Milford will be going to semester classes starting in the fall of 2019, away from the traditional quarter classes. Transitions come slow, but in the end, it will be better for all students.
