Our Panelists: Starting from the left: N'dea from Wayne State, CJ from Adrian, Hannah from UD Mercy, Diana from the University Of Michigan, Luke from Schoolcraft College, Mark from the University of Michigan, and Asha from Eastern Michigan. 

Decision Day is an event that takes place to celebrate John Glenn seniors and the impressive plans they have for next year. As a school, we recognize that the road hasn't been easy, but our students work so hard. Currently, 80% of John Glenn students have been accepted into at least 1 college or trade school. We also have a handful of students who chose the military. As a school, we believe all of these decisions are worth celebrating. As a College Adviser, it is an honor to work with students as they navigate the path that is right for them and their futures!
