Welcome to MHS Career and College Center

  • Welcome to the Meridian High School Career and College Center!

    Hello Warriors! My name is Chelsi Goddard and I am your new college and career counselor!  I am excited to be a part of such a wonderful school! Go MHS!!  A little about me; I’m the first of my family to attend and graduate from college. I graduated from U of I with my B.S in psychology and recently earned my master’s degree in counseling from NNU. I almost went to law school instead of pursuing a degree in counseling, and I’m so glad I didn’t…Counseling and working with students/families is right where I’m meant to be. Prior to MHS, I worked in the mental health field for 9 years.

    Where to find me: The Career Center! (Room 101)
    How to contact me: Goddard.chelsi@westada.org OR come see me in person.

    What I can help you with:

    • Career and college planning
    • Scholarships and financial aid
    • Job searches and employment readiness
    • Dual credit classes/Advanced Opportunities accounts
    • Military connections
    • Apprenticeships
    • SAT/ACT prep
    • and so much more!

      College and Career information will be shared through:
    • Quarterly newsletters
    • Student Announcements
    • Remind
    • Naviance
    • School Website
    • Classroom presentations
    • Evening events for parents/students
    College representatives and military recruiters visit our campus often, so be sure to check out our calendar page and listen to the daily announcements to learn about who will be here. In the Career Center you will find college and career information, military information, employment opportunities, scholarship information, and much more! 
    I highly recommend that students take advantage of Idaho Career Information System.  CIS provides the opportunity to explore hundreds of occupations and education and training programs. It also offers an exploration component where students can use various assessments related to occupations, schools, financial aid/scholarships and skills. 
    There are many scholarship websites to start exploring even as early as your freshmen year! A few of the most used scholarship websites include Big Future by College Board https://bigfuture.collegeboard.org/pay-for-college/grants-scholarships  Next Steps Idaho https://nextsteps.idaho.gov/resources/scholarship-search-101/ and Student Scholarships https://studentscholarships.org/ 
    Please feel free to email with any questions.
