The 2015 Greenwood Junior High School “Career Expo” provided freshmen students with opportunities to learn first-hand career information from professionals in fields related to their career interests.   Freshmen students gathered for brief messages from Mr. Cody Chatman, GJHS Principal; Mr. Jerry Efurd, GHS Principal; Mrs. Sheila Lemley and Mrs. Jolynn Dixon, counselors.   Students will use the knowledge gained to make informed career decisions as they set high school and post-secondary education goals during their spring semester.  During the opening assembly, students were also challenged and encouraged by Dr. Sandy Johnson from Johnson Dermatology to incorporate the 7 habits from the Leader in Me series in their daily lives.

From interest questionnaires, students were scheduled to listen to 5 career speakers from the surrounding community.  Careers included the medical profession, veterinary science, interior design, photography, criminal justice, engineering, construction, architecture, education, accounting, and cosmetology as well as others.
