Career Exploration Workshop at CCC

On Thursday, October 23rd, students from Memorial High School visited Cumberland County College for a Career Exploration Workshop that was sponsored by the Cumberland / Salem Workforce Investment Board.  Participating students got the chance to increase their knowledge of career readiness and employability skills by speaking with local professionals.  Many different industries were represented including, but not limited to the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math.  Students got to speak personally with representatives that discussed prospective careers and job growth.  Mary Bacon chaperoned the group and reported it was a fantastic experience!

Another Successful College Admissions Night

We have received a lot of positive feedback from those who attended our Annual College Admissions Night on October 8, 2014.  Approximately, 150 people attended the event!  The coordinators, Ms. Giercyk, Ms. Jackson, and Mrs. LaFerriere put together a great program and included student speakers who discussed their experiences while visiting colleges.  A special thanks to Ms. Bacon, Ms. Davis, and Mr. McAfee for also contributing to the very informational presentations.  If you were not able to attend the event, but would like a copy of the presentation, please see your guidance counselor.
