What Are Seniors Doing After Graduation

Stay in touch with you peers after graduation
Maggie Erickson

With a school as big as Thomas, students often find themselves graduating without knowing what their classmates are going to pursue after the fact.  We encourage students to reach out, and ask the kids they grew up with what their hopes and dreams are.  TWHS news has done some of the dirty work for you, asking a variety of eight students, all involved in different activities, what they see their future looking like.  After being asked a variety of questions about their highschool experience, and what they plan to do after graduation these were the responses.  


Mollie Geiger- (Theatre, Varsity Lacrosse)

“I’ve been doing theater since I was in 4th grade and have always had a passion for that and singing,  I’ve also been doing lacrosse since 3rd grade.” 

Geiger continues to tell us her impressive plans after graduation.  “I plan to major in acting at SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design)  and do singing on my own time. Maybe if I have time, I can join a lacrosse club.”


Emma Lynch- (Varsity Vollyball, Freshman Mentor) 

“In my four years here at Thomas Worthington High School I have been involved in volleyball every year and played club before that. I was a freshman mentor, and was also part of the EBA program along with a student internship with the local paper, Worthington Spotlight.”

Lynch goes onto tell us about her plans following highschool.   “Next year I will be going to Ohio University majoring in Journalism at the E.W Scripps School,  and minoring in sports media broadcasting! I plan to rush to a sorority,  and find an internship if I can. As well as possible club volleyball.”

I’m also a freshman mentor, I’m in NHS, and I am the Veteran’s Day Committee co-chair. Also, every year, I help our Mr. Pflieger with the Secret Santa Toy Drive.”  “Next year, I plan to go to OSU to study Microbiology or Biochemistry  (I haven’t entirely decided yet) and potentially minor/ double major in history.

“This year, I’ve been doing some self-exploration to get a better idea of what my interests are.  I have been taking a variety of different classes, working at Starbucks, and planning to start a business internship soon.  As for next year.”  “I am probably going to go to college, most likely for business, at Otterbein, OSU, or Columbus State.  However, I am also considering taking a gap year to continue working, and to decide what exactly I want to go to school for.”  Barath Continues.

“After highschool I am planning on being involved with mission work. I have been in the digital design program at DACC for the past two years and have fallen in love with graphic design so I plan to use that to help me fund my missions trips by starting a clothing business.
