Several Plymouth High School students received awards at the Jobs for America’s Graduates Regional Career Development Conference last week in South Bend.
JAG is a national program designed to help at-risk students finish high school and then either pursue post-secondary education or secure quality jobs. Last Thursday, close to 100 students from more than 15 area high schools competed in both individual and group events demonstrating their job skills, in areas like writing, speaking and critical thinking.
Plymouth students received awards in five separate categories. Mia Arroyo placed second for Outstanding Senior, while Alejandra Diaz received second place for Community Service Blog and third place for Public Speaking. Hayley Brown placed second for Brochure, while a group consisting of Stacy Diaz, Katy Corsaw, and Nathan Corsaw won second place for Entrepreneurship Plan.
