Erica Bollas, sophomore, is ready to take on her junior year at SHS.

Erica Bollas is a current sophomore at Struthers High School, and se will be a junior this upcoming school year. The start of the scheduling process for next year has already begun this past month. 

The reality of this school year ending and a new one approaching has officially settled. The preparation has started, and the nerves have kicked in. 

Bollas feels sort of anxious about her junior year getting closer. 

“I am a little nervous, mostly because all of the classes will be different and more challenging,” says Bollas. 

Scheduling is quite the task. It takes a lot of thinking and planning to get everyone the correct classes and credits they need. It may seem simple, but it is a hassle. 

Bollas gives some insight on the process in general. 

“For the scheduling process, we have a class meeting where we schedule and go over classes with our guidance counselors. Then, they call each student down to their office to review their selections,” says the sophomore. 

Many believe that junior year is the hardest. This is true for various reasons: future plans are brought into the picture, juniors are newly upperclassmen, college is a big topic, etc. 

The upcoming junior prepares herself for the new opportunities and requirements that are in store for her. 

“Juniors are introduced to many new opportunities, some being that I will have to take the ACT, and that I can go to Prom and Homecoming,” says the future junior.
