Gateway to Your Future

8th grade attends Gateway to Your Future
Posted on 01/12/2023
students learningThe Nacogdoches County Chamber of Commerce education committee sponsored the Gateway to Your Future for eighth graders in Nacogdoches county. Bridge Year, Houston-based non-profit, presented 6 hands-on career simulations: phlebotomist, electrician, pharmacy technician, automotive technician, plumber, and network technician. Cushing eighth graders had the opportunity to “test drive” three of the six choices and Bridge Year staff guided open discussion about next steps for high school and beyond. The hope is that students will get to experience a career that they may not have thought about trying, have some help thinking about high school course selection, and consider post-secondary options.
