I CAN BE program provides guidance to high school students

By Joyce Lupiani. CREATED Feb 17, 2014

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.
