Local business and community leaders invest personal time and talent in local 7th grade students.

Madison, IN:  On Friday, April 17, 2015 the Madison Consolidated Junior High School will host over 30 local business and community leaders as they provide career insight to over 300 7th grade students from Madison Consolidated Junior High School and Southwestern Middle School.

For the first time, students will attend career presentations based on results from their individual Indiana Career Explorer assessment.  Indiana Career Explorer helps students of all ages explore potential career fields based upon interests determined through a series of age/grade level appropriate survey questions.  “Beginning as early as 6th grade, counselors and teachers utilize these tools with our students to help them realize fields of interest in order to better plan their academic paths,” shares Principal, Jill Mires.  “Our students now have access to a number of tools which help them identify areas of interest so their course work becomes more personalized and purposeful as they pursue their high school diploma.  The other advantage to using these tools early is the opportunity it gives the student to experience classes in order to determine if the academic path and career field is appealing; and if not, time and resources to help redirect curriculum.”  

Counselors from both schools have worked together to secure presenters for the event.  Career clusters being highlighted are: Education and Training, Human Services, Arts, Audio Video Technology and Communication, Manufacturing, STEM, Transportation and Logistics, Business Management, Finance and Marketing, and Health Science.  

The event will be hosted by Madison Consolidated Junior High School on Friday, April 17, 2015 from 8:00 to 10:30 a.m.
