Hundreds of middle school-aged girls are getting together next month, to learn about career opportunities. Girls in 6th, 7th and 8th grades are invited to attend this year's Expanding Your Horizons workshop at Tyler Junior College. There, they learn about health, engineering, agriculture and business among many other subjects relating to math and science.
Cindy Gaddis, a role model this year and in the years past said, "They get the experience of seeing these opportunities, whether it's being a nurse, or a chemist or a math teacher like myself, it's very exciting. Plus, they get to leave their home town, take a little trip on the school bus, so that's always exciting."
Expanding Your Horizons is on the TJC campus Saturday, February 18th. The registration fee is $8 and includes snacks, materials and a T-shirt. Students have until February 3rd to register.
