This month's Career Connect was a special one focused on our armed forces. Students met with active members of our military and also had the opportunity to speak with local veterans about their time in the service. Some of our own graduates were present to share their experiences and how the military has benefitted their life. Thank you to all the men and women who served and took the time to come speak to our students!!! A special thank you to VFW Post 6382 of Hallettsville for representing your branches!

HHS hosted their first "Career Connect" of the year on September 20. Community members in the business, marketing, finance, and hospitality professions were invited to share their educational journey and provide advice to students interested in these specific fields. Students were given the opportunity to ask questions and make connections to help them discern their future careers. This year HHS will host a Career Connect each month focused on one of the fourteen CTE Programs of Study. Next month's Career Connect will be on October 18 focused on Human Services and Health Sciences.
