Great ideas for schools #10: College reminders

On 5/2/11, I had the pleasure of speaking at Johnson Junior High in Las Vegas. Even though I've seen
year-round outdoor lockers at desert schools before, I still can't get my head around them.

Something I had not seen before was this kind of screen setup:

Nor had I seen this, a main office counter bedecked with names of colleges:

Every time a student comes to the office, s/he is reminded of college and exposed to an ample choice of colleges. I realize that some young people probably don't notice the little signs, or don't notice them after the first time, but it still seems like a good way to perpetually reinforce the importance of higher education. And it's so easily done.
