Central High School welcomes Career Coach Kelsie Garrett. Ms. Garrett previously worked with Central as a dual enrollment specialist. She will continue to assist our students with dual enrollment at Central Alabama Community College to receive college and high school credit simultaneously, but her role has become more expansive.
Garret will be working with students in eighth-twelfth grade to assist them on their path to a career and/or college starting in eighth grade when students take the Career Interest Survey. Ms. Garrett has already held an evening workshop for seniors and parents to assist them with completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FASFA). Every senior has also had the opportunity to apply to college for free.
Garrett will also have military recruiters on campus once a month for students interested in serving their country, as well as planned industry tours for students interested in going straight into the workforce. Lastly, Garrett is starting Cougar Talk, which will be an opportunity for alumni to share their college and/or career story with our students. If you are a Central alumni and you feel led to help our students on their college and/or career path please contact Ms. Garrett at firstname.lastname@example.org. She can also be reached on her Facebook page, Coosa Central career coach. Garrett also welcomes non-alumni who would like to get involved in helping our students reach their college and/or career goals. She is also accepting donations of gift cards and gift certificates to use as motivational tools for students.
Garrett recently took 37 juniors and seniors on a tour of Southern Union Community College. The group toured the entire campus, including the library, Student Union, Administration Building, and met with financial aid, admissions and ambassadors. Pictured is the tour of the tech program, Plastics Injections Molding, led by Shawn Mitchell, career coach at Southern Union.
