LACONIA — Huot Technical Center Student Shyanne Labrecque writes:
Adulthood: What is it, but an intimidating part of life that scares all high school students?
Fortunately, the Huot Technical Center hosted its first annual Senior Conference "This Is It!" designed to help students with the daunting transition from the backpacks of high school to the world of work or further education. The seminar was attended by 150 students from Belmont, Franklin, Gilford, Inter-Lakes, Laconia and Winnisquam Regional High Schools.
The conference focused on student's fears and concerns of the unpredictable world outside of their familiar school surroundings and offered students advice and guidance on how to navigate their roles ahead. The following workshops focused on different aspects of adult life: Personal Health and Wellness, Money Matters for Young Adults, Living Like an Adult and Decision Making and the Ying and Yang of Yes and No. The stimulating community speakers were: Michael Seymour, Bank of NH Pavilion at Meadowbrook, Jen Schongalla, a registered Yoga Teacher with 500 hours of training, James Glover and Eric Petell, TD Bank, Chief Mike Moyer (retired), Laconia Police Department, and Officer Patrick O'Reilly, Belknap Correctional Facility.
We, the Huot Class of 2014, would like to thank all the guest speakers for giving us a beneficial insight into "Life as an adult" because for us, "This really is it!"
All involved can conclude that the conference was a great success and the Senior Conference will be back in 2015.
