Season 2


With the end of the school year in sight, it’s easy for some students to check out and coast to the end. On this episode of The Harbor by Jostens, Mike challenges students to remember the goals they set for themselves before the school year started, and to focus on finishing this school year strong. Instead of counting down the days until students are out of school, Mike hopes that students start counting down how many days they have left to make an impact on their campus.
