    A list of tasks for your Senior Year:

    If you have never created a resume, you should definitely start one now. If you have created one in the past, it is important to update it for scholarships and job interviews. Microsoft Word has a great High School Student template. So does www.AZCIS.intocareers.org . Enjoy your senior year and continue to work hard so that you are able to reach all of your future goals and ambitions. Also, don’t forget to check the MaryvaleScholarships Facebook page and the scholarships we have listed here on the Counseling web site.
