Students and Professionals Note Overwhelming Success

During the morning of January 29, 2019 the Ramey School AVID program hosted a Career Day event attracting 21 professionals to our campus. Prior to the event, students were surveyed to gain a deeper understanding as to which career options they would be most interested in. The purpose of the event was to allow our 6 – 12th grade students to obtain greater exposure to a variety of careers. Students gained insight into their top three career choices during 30 minute sessions.
