On Wednesday, January 16, Lake Stevens High School will be hosting an evening for students and their parents to ask questions and get help planning their post-high school career path. The event will start at 6:30 p.m. in the school cafeteria/commons where a variety of colleges and companies will be talking to students about future goals.
Representatives from over 30 schools and organizations will be in attendance to inform students about specific programs of study and answer any questions they may have. Colleges such as Everett Community College, Cornish College of the Arts, Washington State University, University of Washington and the Northwest Hair Academy will be present. There will also be spokespersons from companies in the community who are looking to hire students after graduation for jobs and apprenticeships such as Boeing and PUD. Men and women from the Armed Forces will also be present for those students who are interested in a career in the military.
The night will also feature break-out sessions to help students learn about college admission and good writing habits for college essays. During other break-out sessions, topics such as the Running Start, a program through Everett Community College that gives students an opportunity to take college classes while in high school, and ORCA (Ocean Research College Academy) programs will be discussed.
The night is open to students of all grade levels and their parents. If you have questions, contact Kim LaFortune in the Lake Stevens High School Career Center at 425-335-1580 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
