Havelock High senior Marc Anthony Montanez wants to be a chef.

“I have so many ideas I just want to put to good use,” he said.

He found exactly what he wanted on the menu at Havelock High School’s annual College Day.

Organized by the school’s guidance office, College Day featured more than 50 colleges from North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and even Alabama. But, it didn’t take long for Montanez to narrow his choice to Johnson and Wales and its culinary arts program.

“When I found out this college had what I wanted, I just knew it was where I wanted to be,” he said.

Havelock High juniors and seniors had the opportunity to spend 30 minutes each in the school’s gymnasium talking to college representatives and getting brochures. Many learned the early deadline to apply to many colleges is fast approaching.

Senior Catherine Koontz is already prepared for that. Planning to go into engineering in college, she has narrowed her focus to a short list of schools — N.C. State, UNC-Charlotte and Meredith.
