Mock Job Interviews for Seniors

SWHS English teacher Betty Resor has mentored six YCC seniors this school year in the areas of resume-writing, job interviewing, and other soft skills. In conjunction with the SWHS Career Fair, Betty organized a group of students who agreed to be participants in mock interviews while senior students from other classes observed. Before the interviews started, volunteer Felicia Stomieroski from Forcht Bank discussed the importance of soft skills when being interviewed by potential employers.

SWHS Career Fair 2018

The SWHS Career Fair was held Friday, April 20. Thirty-four businesses/employers and colleges participated in this event. We appreciate so many community members being willing to donate their time and resources to meet with students and discuss college and career opportunities.

YCC Student Spotlight

Tanner McBryde is a junior at SWHS and is the YCC April Student Spotlight. Tanner has taken PLTW engineering courses each year of his high school career. He enjoys this career pathway and states, "I like how we do challenging and fun projects that teach us how to do all different types of engineering fields."

A well-rounded student, Tanner also plays baseball for the SWHS Warriors. The team has made strong performances this year, and Tanner would like to encourage everyone to come out and support the players. In addition, Tanner is a member of DECA, FBLA, and the National Honor Society.

As Tanner approaches his senior year, he will be making important decisions about his post-secondary studies and a career. He has already made some strong choices by selecting PLTW classes as well as honors, dual-credit, and AP courses that can prepare him for college-level classes. The rigor of his high school academics paired with his work ethic and positive attitude will lead to his future success.
