Attention Juniors and Seniors: If you are interested in working in construction and possibly earning a PAID internship this summer, please sign-up in guidance for a presentation to be presented by English Construction on Wednesday, March 15th at 12:30 in the auditorium. The Campbell County Tech Center and a representative from English Construction will talk about what is involved and how you might be able to earn some money this summer. You also get to learn how to drive a back hoe and bulldozer. Last summer we had students who were offered jobs after completing the program. This is a great opportunity and only 15 students across the county get to participate. Sign up today in Guidance.
