Advisors wanted to help MHS grads plan next steps


Of the Keizertimes

McNary High School is looking for a few good volunteers to help guide current students to the next level of their education careers.

“Volunteer advisors would be responsible for meeting with those kids a couple of times a year, finding out what their plans are and formulating a plan that connects them with options,” said Leah Garro, volunteer advisor coordinator at McNary.

The Voluntary Advisor Program fills in a gap left when Salem-Keizer School District eliminated career counselor positions at all the district’s high schools. It left the office formerly occupied by Judy Peterson vacant and unused during much of the 2011-12 school year.
