Students learn about life after high school

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - When it comes to life after high school, there are a lot of options.

On Thursday, local high school students took a close look at their future. Students in grades nine through 12 sat in on a series of workshops at the Radisson, learning about higher education, as well as employment opportunities right after graduation.

Working Solutions was there to help students figure out what opportunities are out there, as well as teaching application and interview skills.

The program director says whether you are planning to go to college or not, it's important to start thinking about your future.

"Some students are hands-on," said Margaret Galloway, program director of the Learning Disabilities Association. "They may not want to go to college, and they just want to go to employment, so we have some employers here to tell them what the requirements would be for them to get into different employment, and it would start with how to get an interview."
