Volunteers in Action
National Honor Society
Glades Central High School
The National Honor Society at Glades Central High School has kicked off its inaugural JA in a Day Event at Pioneer Park Elementary School. With financial support from the Chamber of Commerce of the Palm Beaches, the JA High School Heroes program provides high school students, primarily seniors, the opportunity to become role models by teaching and inspiring elementary students.
JA in a Day
Joey N. Davis from Wells Fargo
Joey Davis, Senior Business Relationship Manager at Wells Fargo Bank, recently did a career presentation at Coral Reef Elementary. Students were fortunate to have the opportunity to listen to her speak about different choices they can have in their future.
By listening to professionals like her, students are able to see first-hand what is involved with different careers.
