Featured University

The featured university this week is Xavier University a small historically Black college, in New Orleans Louisiana.  Students from all backgrounds and all over the US and around the world attend Xavier.  A film about Xavier University was made in the 1920’s by William E. Harmon a wealthy real estate developer who became interested in the achievements of African Americans during the Harlem Renaissance. In 1922 he established the Harmon Foundation in New York City to recognize those achievements not only in the fine arts, but also in business, education, farming, literature, music, race relations, religious service and science. His hope was that exposing those achievements would break down racial barriers.  Xavier continues to do this.  If you are interested in small southern schools, Xavier could be a great school for you!

This week’s featured career is Forestry Engineer.  They manage the overall land quality of forests, parks, rangelands, and other natural resources.  They often spend most of their time outdoors in all kinds of weather and conditions.  If you haven’t explored the forest talk to your parents about going out to Paris Mountain or other forests nearby. If you love being outdoors, this could be an amazing career for you!  What cluster is this career in?

Terrific Kid traits for third  quarter are being friendly and inclusive.  A friendly person is kind and shows an interest in others.  An inclusive person makes sure all students are included in groups, when working or playing.  No one is left out when we are friendly and inclusive.  Be TERRIFIC!
