When I was in high school, I wanted to be a professional baseball player, an orthopedic surgeon, and a TV personality. And a helicopter pilot and a writer for Saturday Night Live. Needless to say, I had a lot of interests and aspirations to make my parents proud in my post high school life. When I became a senior, my path became a lot clearer with the help of the guidance department at North Kingstown High School. They helped me fine tune my interests and skill sets and I finally settled on a college that really fit my needs – Springfield College. I have used my college education every day since graduating in 1994 and have never doubted that it was the perfect fit for me.
The graduation class of 2016 will have similar choices to make for their college or career once they graduate this spring from North Kingstown High School. So, North Kingstown High School along with the staff of the Guidance Department, including Cheryl Thomas, will be having an event to help students get acquainted with a potential college, training academy, and most importantly the beginning steps on your career path. It is the 9th Annual Post High School Planning Night. The event is being held Wednesday April 6th from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at the North Kingstown High School gymnasium.
The RIBBE is The Rhode Island Baseball Experience. It is promoting the game of baseball here in the great state of Rhode Island for the entire baseball world to see. The RIBBE is positive stories, photos, videos, and responsible social media posts. The RIBBE is an information resource for families looking for an AAU team or a summer camp or a great place to buy a first baseman’s mitt. The RIBBE is a network of coaches, tournament directors, parents, leagues, and baseball junkies whose passion of the game of baseball is unquestioned. I believe that providing expert analysis, information and directions to ballfields, and coaching advice from some of the top RI baseball minds will help promote the game of baseball here in RI to a whole new level.
