Lunching and learning at the College and Career Cafe

Last week Hudson Falls middle-schoolers kicked off their College and Career Café series with a visit from Capital Region BOCES Public Information Specialist Aubree Kammler. Mrs. Kammler talked about her role as a communications specialist for the district and what she studied in high school and college to prepare her for the position. Social media as a marketing and communication tool was a hot topic during each session!

The College and Career Café is a part of the middle school counseling program and focuses on college and career readiness goals. Middle school counselors Tricia Chizek and James Shaw agree that it’s a worthwhile and informal way for middle school students to receive practical information and ask questions about readiness, so that they can begin to start thinking about their futures.

The College and Career Café sessions will continue on every Wednesday throughout the month of February.
