Here’s a synopsis of the event from Principal Will Nelson:
Over 800 Cesar Chavez High School Juniors and Seniors participated in various career and college events on February 4th and 5th during our CAHSEE census testing. While our Freshman and Sophomores focused on the CAHSEE test (Freshmen took a practice test), our Juniors and Seniors participated in various career and college events to provide them the opportunity to prepare for life after high school. They had opportunities to visit local college campuses and learn from local professionals in career fields connected to our five Small Learning Communities career pathways (Health, Law, Communication Technology, Environment and Engineering Science, and Creative and Performing Arts). Student were also able to hear from speakers from local universities and colleges such as UOP, Sacramento State, FIDM, and Stanislaus State as well as speakers from all of our Military branches of service.
This was a fantastic event and CCHS would like to thank all of the local business speakers, universities, colleges and military branches for their participation. We would also like to thank Ms. Frances Richardson Coordinator and Administrative Assistant of our local San Joaquin Business Education Alliance for all of their support and outreach in assisting our school with the organizing this event.
