We thought it might be interesting to hear more from some of this year’s young graduates.“What are your plans for the future?” we asked.At James Madison High in Clairemont Mesa and at Clairemont High, some students talked about becoming engineers, veterinarians, and teachers. One young man said he would join the military and eventually try to get a job as an EMT-firefighter. Another graduating senior said he was going to join the electricians’ union, in preparation for starting a business as an electrician.One young woman said she hoped to become an environmental lawyer, and then the head of the Environmental Protection Agency. Many students said they would attend a local community college first and later transfer to San Diego State or another four-year university.Many students told us they were aware of the steeply rising costs of a college education. According to a 2014 national study, seven in ten college students had student loan debt, with an average of nearly $29,000 for each student borrower.We also asked the graduates who they credit for their passion and inspiration.Some said their friends and family helped them, while many gave the credit to their coaches and teachers. 6,000 students this week graduated from the 22 public high schools in the San Diego Unified School District.At the two high schools we visited, more than 90 percent said they planned to attend 2 to 4 year universities.To the class of 2018, we wish all of the young graduates throughout San Diego County much happiness and success!
