|Several CHS students attended the World on a Plate Symposium at the Mississippi Bend Area Education Agency. This symposium was for students who are planning to attend a post-secondary institution of learning following high school graduation. This event provided these students with an opportunity to learn from and interact with a variety of professionals from different backgrounds, all of whom have had extensive experience with travel and working with diverse backgrounds. Students attended various workshops where they learned what skills and strategies they will need to develop in order to be competitive and interact effectively within a culturally diverse work force.|
