Morgan Parris has worked at a local grocery store for almost three years now. “I plan on working there this summer to save money for college. My only problem is I can’t stop spending it.” Parris believes that working a part-time job is great for kids who want to build up a good work ethic and have some “spending money.” She plans on doing work study next year to help save up for books and other necessities.
Emma Konkler, a senior at Audubon, does not, however, have a job. She keeps up her time with keeping her siblings out of trouble. She also has summer practices for basketball, track, and volleyball. “I don’t have a job now, but I plan to have a work-study job once I get to college this fall.”
