MEET Jeremiah Wright, Harper School, Grade 11.

CURRENT VOC ED CLASS: Ag. Business, Advanced Automotive.

WHY I DECIDED TO TAKE THE CLASS: These subjects interested me, and I think they have helped me grow my knowledge and grow as a person. Ag. business has helped me learn a little more about the struggles of businesses and gives me ideas on how I could run my own someday. I love the technical side of automotive, I love science, so it really speaks to me.

WHAT I LIKE ABOUT IT: These classes are helping teach me about the world around me. They help explain things that seem complicated.

WHAT I’D LIKE THE COMMUNITY TO KNOW:  These programs need support, they are fun, and they help teach life skills, they could potentially be you, or your kids calling someday.

MY FUTURE DREAMS: I don't quite know what I want from life yet, but I know whatever I choose to do, I will work hard for it and use the skills I have learned from these courses to make myself better.
