Local middle school students and their parents participated in panel discussions, planning activities and interactive demonstrations during last night’s #Choices community summit.
During the event, students learned about making the right choices to put them on a path to success for high school and beyond. Participants also toured a Career Marketplace to learn about employment opportunities in a variety of fields including nursing, welding and computer science.
#Choices was funded by America’s Promise Alliance as part of its Grad Nation initiative. The Grad Nation initiative brings together individuals, organizations and communities to work together to end America’s dropout crisis and increase the graduation rate.
