Local business leaders to tour high school
– The Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce is hosting a special event, Business Goes To School, on Tuesday. A small group of Paso Robles business leaders will observe the high quality of education in our community.
The group will spend the morning at Paso Robles High School. They will meet with principal Randy Nelson, members of his faculty, and student leaders for an overview of the school before student tour guides lead the group to view classrooms throughout the campus. This special event is part of a long-term program bringing education and business together to work on workforce and job skills issues that affect our young people and the local economy.
As with previous Business Goes To School events, invitations have been sent to business people whose companies represent one of the 10 career pathways identified in a recent grant to San Luis Obispo County schools.
An attendee at the previous Business Goes To School, Mayor Steve Martin noted afterwards,
“I was very impressed by the range and depth of instructional programs at the high school,” said Mayor Steve Martin after attending a previous event. “I don’t think many of our residents are aware of them and I will be working to help correct that in the future. Hats off to the high school, the district and the students involved in these programs.”
The event begins Tuesday at 8:30 a.m. at Paso Robles High School. It is an excellent opportunity to see first-hand how our schools are preparing our young people to become successful and contributing adults. Interested locals are invited to join the chamber for the three-hour event.
Business Goes To School is a program created through the joint efforts of the Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce and Paso Robles Joint Unified School District. Another Business Goes to School event is scheduled for November. For more information, contact Pam Avila at the Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce at (805) 238-0506.
