Why should we work with

Perhaps the best answer to that question comes from Jeff Martucci who is a student and an admissions intern at Champlain College in Burlington, Vermont. When asked what would make the college search process more effective, Jeff replied: "It's too bad every high school student couldn't work with my former guidance counselor, Mike Donahue. He knows the students he works with as people first and students second. Mr. D also knows colleges and has a unique ability to match students with appropriate college choices."
