I CAN BE program provides guidance to high school students
Members of the Henderson business community spoke to students last week at Foothill High School as part of the I CAN BE program.
The purpose of the event was to help students learn what high school course best suit their long-term, professional goals.
The one-day event on Feb. 12 was hosted by the Henderson Chamber of Commerce. Students were places divided into 16 areas of interests including agriculture, food and natural resources; architecture and construction; arts, a/v technology and communications; business management and administration; education and training; finance; government and public administration; health science; hospitality and tourism; human services; information technology; law, public safety, corrections and security; manufacturing; marketing; science, technology, engineering and mathematics; and transportation, distribution and logistics.
Three to four volunteers from Henderson businesses and organizations then spent time with each group and gave students one-on-one attention and mentorship.
The entire freshman class participated in the event.
