Walker Career Center weekly update - November 26, 2019

Recruiting never starts too early at WCC

This week we were excited to host 4th graders from Grassy Creek Elementary as they were finishing up their month long career lessons this month. All 90 of their 4th graders were able to come over to visit Walker Career Center and were provided small group tours from our Walker Career Center Leadership Council. During this experience they were able to see 10 of our 25 Career Programs in addition to talking with current students and staff. We hope to be able to host a similar event for all of the 4th graders in Warren Township throughout the 2019-2020 school year.

Empty bowls dinner - Wednesday, December 4th

Empty Bowls is an international grassroots effort to fight hunger. The basic premise is simple: student potters and other craftspeople, educators and others work with the community to create handcrafted bowls. You are invited to a simple meal of chili or veggie chili prepared by our Threshold Restaurant. In exchange for a $10.00 donation, guests are asked to choose a handmade bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the community. The money raised is donated to an organization working to end hunger in our community.

This year the Warren Central High School, Fine Arts Department along with the National Art Honor Society, all other MIC schools and Herron School of Art and Design will be hosting an Empty Bowls dinner on Wednesday, December 4th, 2019, in the Warren Central East Cafeteria from 5-7:30pm. Our goal is to include an educational component to raise awareness, have a silent auction and give the money raised to an organization helping to feed people in need.This year the money raised will benefit Old Bethel Food Pantry.


Tickets are on sale for $10.00 at the

WCHS Bookstore, Old Bethel UMC or at the Event
