Life Ready Day from November 26th, 2019 was a success!!!

"Tuesday, November 26th, CHS held their first “Life Ready Day” from 8:00-11:00. The event was put on by the School Counseling Director, Mallory McMullin, and the CTE Administrator, Ashley Ward. The CCPS Strategic Plan 2022 commits that graduates from Caroline High School be 3E Ready: Employed, Enlisted, or Enrolled. Seventy-nine facilitators presented sessions to the students on various topics. Some of the topics included “Interviewing Tips”, “Overcoming Failure”, “Life After High School is Real”, “Getting to and Through College”, and “Living Your Best Life 101”. Representatives from community included members from Central Office, Virginia State Police, CHS alumni, colleges/universities, military, television, local organizations, churches, and local businesses were just a few who gave their valuable time to the students. CHS appreciates the support of all the presenters, volunteers, school staff, and students that made this event possible. We would also like to thank The Human Society, Second Mt. Zion Baptist, Oxford Mt. Zion Baptist, Ladysmith Food Lion, Carmel Church Dunkin Donuts, and Ashland Chick-fil-a for their generous donations.The high school's culinary class provided lunch to the volunteers when the event concluded."
