Three students win in career project contest


Recently the Health Science students at Haywood High completed career projects, and three students were chosen as winners. First place went to Madison Jackson, who chose the career of pediatric nurse as the theme of her project. Second place went to Aisha Shaw, whose career choice was dentistry, and third place went to Sara Rodriguez, who chose a career in veterinary science to highlight.
The Health Career Display project was a contest among students in the Health Science classes. They were to pick one career they have an interest in and research that career. They were to include information on their project such as: definition, duties, salary, education required for that particular career, schools that offer the desired degree, personal qualities needed to be successful, and a professional resume. The posters were graded on the quality of their work and research, following the guidelines, and creativity.
“This project was very beneficial in helping our students find a career that they can seriously consider pursuing. Also, in researching the guidelines, it had them become familiar with what kind of education and degree they should pursue, what particular schools they can obtain the degree from, and make an informed and educated decision about their future after high school. I am very proud of our students and the effort they put forth,” said teacher Julie Taylor.  Kristin Carlton also teaches Health Sciences classes.
