Counselor’s Chronicle
Summitt is looking for volunteers who would be willing to do a 5-10 minute presentation about their career during morning assembly time. We would like to have career talk Tuesdays once or twice a month to expose all of our eagles to some of the many possibilities that exist. If you would be willing to come to morning assembly one Tuesday morning for 5 minutes or so and present, please email Courtney Cardosa at We look forward to trying to schedule as many careers as possible. Thanks in advance.
