Early College High School
Early College High School hosted 8 guest speakers the first week back from school. They gained more of an understanding of what it takes to be a college student. They gained insight into law, entrepreneurship, nursing/midwifery, supply chain/logistics, video game development, and military career fields. It was an amazing week!
"The speakers provided us with additional knowledge to research."
"Listening and asking questions helped me gain a better understanding of the software development field. It has also reinforced my love for computer science."
"The college students helped me understand and navigate work-life balance as a student."
"I loved learning about different careers."
"I feel Inspired."
"Interesting, I like the variety."
