IMLAY CITY — Imlay City High School Guidance Counselor Laura Druker has spent the school year preparing the Class of 2018 for their imminent graduation, and as they’re set to receive their diplomas today, Druker is confident their paths will lead them to success.

“The Class of 2018 has done an excellent job planning post-secondary/career paths for themselves. As a class, they are diverse in their plans,” said Druker. “Recognizing that each student is unique in their direction, they did a great job challenging themselves to take the best courses possible and pursue training opportunities for their goals. They seem very confident in the plans that they have put together.”

Druker pointed to the positivity that the seniors have brought to Imlay City High School as what will become the class’s defining characteristic. “As a class and as individuals, the Class of 2018 have been involved in many activities that have contributed to a positive school culture, one of kindness, care and concern for others,” she said. “We will miss the day-to-day interactions with the Class of 2018. These seniors have thoughts and perspectives that would impress many adults. They also have a great sense of humor and are fun to be with.”

As 2018’s seniors leave Imlay City High School and enter the world, Druker said the entire Counseling Center of Imlay City High School bids them good travels, wherever their paths may lead them. “It’s been a pleasure working with them, and we wish them well in their endeavors,” said Druker.
