grade students on November 20.  Rather than go to their regularly scheduled classes that morning, students attended five different career presentations, hosted by career professionals.

Every student at NGC recently completed an inventory that identified their career interests based on Missouri’s recognized 16 Career Clusters, and completed Personal Plans of Study, which is a plan that identifies four years of high school core classes and career-related electives that will help them be most prepared for post-secondary learning.

While they’re thinking about career interests, we wanted to provide them an opportunity to talk with career professionals who can share knowledge with them on their profession and the associated training required.  Several people, from a variety of businesses/professions took the time to participate in the Career Day.  Students had the opportunity to select five Career Sessions from the 28 that were being presented.  A big thanks goes out to all of the following businesses for their participation:

• Advance Physical Therapy/Sports
Medicine

• Bank of Old Monroe

• City of Troy

• Edward Jones

• Farmers Insurance

• Geeding Construction, Inc.

• Lincoln County Fire Department

• Lincoln County
Ambulance District

• Lincoln County
Medical Center

• Lincoln County
Sheriff’s Department

• Lincoln County School R-III District

• Mastercard

• Missouri Farm Bureau Insurance

• Mooney Marketing

• McIlroy & Millan Law Firm

• Prosecuting
Attorney’s Office

• Repertory Theatre
of St. Louis

• The Medicine Shoppe

• Rawlings Sporting Goods

• Rose Acre Farms

• St. Louis Carpenters Joint Apprenticeship Program

• United Credit Union

After students attended their five sessions, they were given a reflection assignment on what they learned, which will become part of their Ninth Grade Portfolio.
