Did you know that PVHS is one of the only schools in the Midwest to have a dedicated Career Coordinator? Mrs. Johnson runs the Career Center at the High School. She coordinates job shadows, college visits — you name it. Every month, a different profession is featured in our “Lunch & Learn” program. Students eat their lunch while listening to experts in their field. The next Lunch and Learn is on March 22 and will feature careers in Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy. Genesis will be holding the event with hopes of piloting a program in which several students will be able to intern with the hospital’s PTs. The Career Center also coordinates exciting visits, like one coming up to the University of Iowa. Students will learn about the Medical School directly from the students. We encourage you to check out the PVHS Career Center website or follow @PVHSCareerCtr on twitter. Mrs. Johnson keeps a list of tours, scholarships, job opportunities and job shadow information. There’s a lot there and it all directly benefits our students!
