GCCISD 7th Annual Career Night a Success
By Susan Passmore
Goose Creek CISD’s recent 7th Annual Career Night, hosted by the GCCISD Career and Technical Education (CTE) Department and held at Robert E. Lee High School, provided an opportunity for students and parents to meet business and industry professionals as well as representatives from high school and post-secondary programs and technical schools all in one location.
High School Option Information Sessions were available with presentations on the career academies – STEM at Robert E. Lee High School, Global Business at Goose Creek Memorial High School and Health Science at Ross S. Sterling High School – and IMPACT Early College High School, Stuart Career Center, Stuart Career Tech High School and the Cosmetology program. College and Career Readiness counselors assisted with FAFSA applications.
“We had more than 200 students in attendance,” said Monica Swift, Student Workforce Connection liaison. “Thirty companies were represented as well as 12 post-secondary institutions or programs. This was the perfect place for students and parents to learn about the many different careers and pathways available to them. The GCCISD CTE Department wishes to thank the 126 representatives and volunteers, including 31 cluster teachers, for their assistance in making this a successful event.”
