Work-Based Learning (WBL) students at Greene County High School spent Tuesday, March 25 and Wednesday, March 26 teaching first – fifth grade students about different careers. The goal was to educate the younger students about different career options that will be available to them when they are older. The main question that the high school students asked was, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” With each answer the WBL students explained that in order to have a career, you must have a good education. The GCHS students were equipped with a PowerPoint, videos, stickers, bookmarks, coloring sheets and candy. WBL Coordinator Christie James created and organized the event and coordinated with Union Point STEAM counselor Dr. Dee Kilgore and Greensboro Elementary School counselor Kim Bridwell on presenting at each of the schools.
Greene County High School has eight Career Pathways: Agriculture Mechanics, Agriscience, Marketing, Culinary Arts, Therapeutic Services (Nursing), Air Force JROTC, Automotive, and Manufacturing. All Greene County High School students are required to complete one of the state approved pathways that fall within one of the 17 federal career clusters in addition to earning their high school diploma.
