Career Coaches Guide Students at MAHS

Amanda Pawich, project manager with the
Walton County Juvenile Court, talks with two students
 about careers in social work and juvenile justice.
Students in the Prepared, Polished and Professional series  at Monroe Area High School were introduced to their Career Coaches during Wednesday's session.  Career Coaches are volunteers from the community who make a commitment to work one-on-one with a student who is interested in pursuing the kind of career the volunteer holds.  

Two nurses from Clearview Regional Medical Center talk with
 a student about the different options available in nursing.
Career coaches help guide students with information about the necessary skills, traits and training needed to succeed in the specified career.  They also let the students know about opportunities such as internships, job shadowing, seminars, and other resources and help students with applications for scholarships and letters of recommendation. "Our students enjoyed meeting their coaches today and learned so much from them," said CIS Site Coordinator Ivy Corder.  "We appreciate the volunteers and their commitment to our students."
