Majority of this year's Willmar, Minn., grads planning to attend college


WILLMAR -- More than 80 percent of this year's Willmar Senior High graduates plan to continue their education.

Nearly a third of the 230 graduates will attend Ridgewater College, and many of them intend to transfer to a four-year college or university to complete four-year degrees.

The school released its annual survey of seniors this week. The information was compiled and provided to the Tribune by Amy Isaacson in the Senior High counseling office.
