The Bear Creek School Hosts How to Plan (not Panic) for College

REDMOND, Wash. - Oct. 16, 2019 - PRLog -- The college selection process can be intimidating, confusing, and downright scary. Parents and students are invited to spend an evening at The Bear Creek School learning practical strategies for every step of the college journey.

Bear Creek is excited to host Tools for Success: How to Plan (not Panic) for College on Thursday, November 7, 2019, at Bear Creek's Upper School (8525 208th Avenue NE, Redmond, WA). Doors open at 5:00 p.m. for coffee and refreshments, and the presentation begins at 5:30 p.m.

Dean of College and Academic Advising Colleen Murray will begin by demystifying college admissions. Colleen has an extensive background in college and academic advising having served more than two decades in education. She holds a bachelor's in psychology and a master's in counseling from San Diego State University, where she also earned a Pupil Personnel Services Credential. Then English Department Chair Kenny Norris will discuss how to master the college essay. Kenny joined the Bear Creek English faculty in 2006 and was honored in 2017 by Stanford University's Teacher Tribute program. Finally, Drew Armstrong, humanities teacher, will end with a discussion about the interpersonal skills every college student needs to master. After completing two master's degrees, Drew turned to teaching, and if given the chance, he will talk your ear off about theology, philosophy, and college football.
