Decision Day took place on May 1. Decision Day is celebrated nationwide for high school seniors to declare where they are going to college or show what path they will follow as they graduate from high school. Students signed a declaration showing their decision to attend college in the fall.

For senior Nia Jackson picking a college was not easy. Nia has been accepted to 17 colleges throughout the country. She has decided on one: Michigan State University.

Jackson is a principal’s list student who maintains a 4.0 grade point average along with the many extracurricular activities she participates in. At University Prep she is vice-president of the drama club, she has run track and played volleyball. Jackson is a singer in the Mosaic Youth Theatre group, part of the Midnight Golf program, and she is a youth praise team leader at Word of Faith Church.

In the fall, Jackson will be a part of the Scholars Program at Michigan State University. Jackson said she picked MSU because of the financial support that they offered her. In the future, Jackson said she plans to attend medical school to become a behavior analyst or psychiatrist for the FBI or CIA.
