Dear West Geauga Families:

Happy New Year to all of you! I hope you enjoyed time with friends and family over the break.

This past fall, West Geauga High School was proud to introduce a speaker series to all of the students during the scheduled advisory periods. The purpose of the speaker series is to bring relevant and interesting topics to our student body. It is our hope that information presented to our students can be applied to better students' private and academic lives. In addition, leadership opportunities have been and will continue to be available to our students through this program. Students will have the opportunity to participate on a speaker selection committee. They are also invited to participate through presentations of their own.

During the scheduled advisory periods, students meet as a grade level in our large lecture hall. Tuesday presentations are made to freshmen during advisory A and sophomores during advisory B. Thursday speakers present to seniors and juniors during advisory A and advisory B, respectively. Presentations are tailored to the appropriate grade level and the same presentation may not necessarily be made to the entire student body.

The series began on November 7, 2017 and ran through November 30th. First semester speakers included presentations on philanthropy, organ donation, study skills, sexual assault, dating violence and drug and alcohol awareness. Some of the second semester speaker presentations include topics on interview skills, soft skill development, preparing for life after high school and summer internship opportunities.

West Geauga High School is always looking for guest speakers to present interesting and relevant topics to our students. If you have an idea or know a speaker who will capture students’ interests, please feel free to let me know.

As always, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Best wishes for a wonderful 2018.
