This year Gadsden County High School is introducing a new program. The new program is called the Gadsden County High School School of Business & Industry Prep School.
This program is a partnership between the Gadsden County High School Business program and Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University’s world-renowned College of Business & Industry. Last Wednesday, Gadsden County High School’s School of Business & Industry Prep School program hosted its kickoff event.
The event was a meet-and-greet with representatives from FAMU’s College of Business & Industry and served as the official launching of the Gadsden County High School School of Business & Industry Prep School program.
Last Wednesday’s event included the members of the School of Business & Industry Prep School program; Jennifer Collins, assistant dean of FAMU’s College of Business & Industry; O’Hara Hannah, head of recruiting for the FAMU college; and Kelley Bailey – along with the Gadsden County School District Budget Manager Laclarence Mays, who serves on the Prep program’s advisory board; and Gadsden County Schools K-12 director Sylvia Jackson.
Also in attendance was Chavien Lockwood, who serves on the Prep School program’s advisory board as well. The group received words of encouragement from Gadsden County High School Principal Pamela Jones, Program Director Jamaal Holt, Jennifer Collins and O’Hara Hannah.
Refreshments for the program were prepared by the Gadsden County High School’s Culinary Department – led by James Bradwell.
