Sydney Williams, extended learning opportunities (ELO) coordinator at Deering High School, shared the following information about an opportunity students had last month to explore careers in construction:
On Thursday, Oct. 5, we took a group of 10 students to West Bath for Maine Construction Day for a half day full of hands-on fun! I was really impressed by how well behaved, curious and engaged the group was with all the activities. They took the initiative to walk up and speak to folks about their work and asked really good questions. They networked, took business cards and a couple were promised summer jobs. I couldn't have asked for a better group of kids!
