I'll never forget my high school graduation. It's a day you think will never come and then it happens and you're "out in the real world." That was a completely scary thought for me. I know many high school seniors struggle with the anxiety of moving on to the next step.

For me, I was friends with a lot of smart and wonderful people and most of them were going to universities and I was going to community college, so I felt left out. Then, once I got to community college and I realized it was a fantastic place and it was where I belonged, I loved it so much.

College can be a scary transition for many and what the Smith Family Foundation is doing can be very comforting to high school students who just graduated. Kudos to this wonderful program.
