8th Grade Career Awareness

May 4th from 8:00-11:30 am

We need YOUR help! Whether you are a nurse, mechanic, financial advisor, barber, attorney, electrician or business owner – we’d love to hear from you!

We are looking for a variety of people interested in spending the morning talking to our students about their career. Many of our students are unaware of the career opportunities available to them and this is a fantastic way to provide them with first hand knowledge of potential career paths. This is a great way for you to get involved in HMS and to make an impact on the futures of our students.

If you are interested in participating, please RSVP to Jeff Salvesen

If you are not interested but know someone who is, please give them the contact information above. This event can’t happen without presenters!

We look forward to seeing you on May 4th!
