Washington High School's College & Career Academy is focused on preparing all students for life after high school by connecting students with local business leaders to provide career exploration and employment opportunities.

On Tuesday, March 29, and Wednesday, March 30, 2022, local business leaders gave presentations to juniors and seniors. There were three sessions each day with four to five businesses presenting a ten-minute presentation in each one-hour session. Following each session, there was a 15-minute breakout opportunity for students to interact and ask questions with the presenters.

During their ten-minute presentation, business leaders focused on giving students information on any possible job shadowing, internship, and current employment opportunities that are or will be available in the near future. Post-secondary information that may help students with future opportunities in their field were shared as well.

Thank you all of our local business partners for sharing with our students and to Suzanne Hawthorne and Austin Moody for organizing this event.
