Preparing Students for the Next Stages of Their Lives

Career WeekRUHS Student Services is hosting a Focus on Careers week for all students November 13-16.

Throughout the week, professionals from a wide range of occupations and organizations will give “lunch talks” to students who are interested in learning more about particular careers. Students may sign-up to attend any workshops they are interested in.

For each presentation a student attends, he/she will receive a raffle ticket to win local prizes such as gift certificates, VTC clothing, RUHS athletic gear, etc.
