What do you get when you put a class of nervous graduating high school seniors in a room with community and business leaders? An amazing experience for seniors to see what real world interviews will be like in their careers. As Jeff Emanuel, director of The Foundation of the Columbia Montour Chamber realized, you also get a great opportunity to see the hope for the future of our region. Emanuel was one of over 100 business and community leaders from throughout the region that participated in senior exit interviews at Central Columbia High School in late May.
The senior exit interview at Central Columbia is a culminating activity of a high school student’s career. In this joint effort between the school and local community leaders, students are interviewed and expected to engage in a conversation about their career action plan. Every year, more than 100 community leaders participate in this activity. In the minds of the students, the senior exit interview is arguably one of the most significant and worthwhile experiences in their high school career.
If you are interested in participating in this event in future years as a local business leader, contact Central Columbia High School principal Jeff Groshek at 784-2850 ex. 3444 or via email.
