VCHS Career Day
On Thursday, March 14, the high school hosted Career Day for grades 9-12. Twenty-four speakers joined us for the afternoon and talked with students about a variety of careers. Students attended three different, twenty-five minute sessions.
We had representatives from the fields of law, forestry, forensic psychology, midwifery, sports marketing, to name a few. Each speaker represented a unique profession, and all were highly skilled in their fields of expertise and graciously volunteered their afternoons to be with us.
The goal of event was to expose students to working professionals and encourage students to think about their futures and what they might want to focus on in college. The day was also intended to help students understand that careers and life do not always follow a singular path and that people find themselves working in professions they never thought possible.
It was a very successful event. Thank you to all who helped make the day a success.
Host Families Needed:
We are still in need of three more families to host Japanese students at the end of September (27th – 30th). The visit is for 3 nights. The Japanese students are from Shukutoko Yono High School. This is a very short commitment and the experiences for all involved are invaluable.
Thank you to the families that have offered to open up their homes in the fall.
