Dare to Dream speaker series at Ocean Springs Middle
Ocean Springs Middle School initiated an interactive program that allows students to get a head start on their career choice.
The Dare to Dream speaker series gives students the opportunity to learn about different career clusters from finance to business management, architecture, and more. Students have the opportunity to learn from and question various professionals every other Wednesday of the month during their lunch break. This week’s Dare to Dream speaker was Dr. Jacob Church, a veterinarian with Bienville Animal Medical Center.
Carolyn Clark started the Dare to Dream speaker series. She said, “They’ve come with wonderful questions about what it takes, what kind of education is involved to achieve those dreams. That’s the most important thing is to try and see a future for themselves and a pathway to get there.”
This is the first year for the Dare to Dream series. School officials plan to carry the program into next year’s calendar.
