IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  A recent survey of 410 human resource professionals shows that 36% of companies in the U.S. have disqualified job candidates because of concerning information on social media/online search.  Just this past week an ESPN employee was terminated for an ill-advised post on his Twitter account.  Do you get the picture?  You must be aware at all times of what you are posting and talking about on social media.  Most student-athletes don’t realize how serious the consequences might be for something they deem non-important when voicing their opinions and thoughts on social media.  Your actions today can affect your future of tomorrow.  Don’t be careless or thoughtless with your words!

Attention Juniors and Seniors:  Prom tickets are now on sale during lunches Tuesday-Friday through May 13th for $35 each, payable by cash or check.  The price will increase to $45 the week of prom, so get your tickets now!
