The Sixth Annual 8th Grade “Your Choice, Your Future” Career Exploration Day took place from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. on November 18 and 19 at the Wilma Rudolph Event Center.
The purpose of the event was to inform 8th grade students about a variety of future career opportunities from local businesses and workforce professionals. CMCSS recognizes that there are specific workforce needs for Montgomery County and Middle Tennessee, and is actively introducing students to these opportunities by offering more career education within the high school curriculum.
