The "Career Ready" Award at Our Career Center

Every month each program of study will be recognizing students from our 7 comprehensive high schools that demonstrate qualities that make them "Career Ready". These traits range from having great work ethic to adapting and demonstrating resiliency when facing a difficult task.

Our students are chosen by the instructor of their respective program and their certificate is presented in front of their peers. This is such an exciting opportunity for our students to cheer one another on and motivate each other to exceed expectations. We ask that you celebrate your kiddos on campus as well!
