AT&T Retail Store hosts students from R. B. Stall High School’s DECA Student Organization

R. B. Stall High School’s DECA adviser Michael Breedlove provided the following account of his students’ recent work-based learning visit to a local AT&T retail store:

“We had 11 DECA students attend, and were greeted by a host of AT&T employees and the staff of the local retail store.  Students were given a hands on tour of the store working with staff as they helped customers with issues and questions. Students were briefed on the behind the scenes workings of a AT&T retail store.  They also got to meet an AT&T partner that provided some of their equipment. The outing ended with a group luncheon at Smokey Bones.”

Thank you to all the professionals from AT&T that invested their time and talent in these DECA students from R. B. Stall High School!

SPAWAR Hosts Local High School Students for IT Shadowing Day

Students and educators from throughout the Charleston region were invited to get an in depth behind the scenes tour of the Space and Naval Warfare Atlantic Systems Center, known as SPAWAR in Charleston.

Each participant received a badge and detailed instructions prior to their facility tour; “there are top secret missions underway behind the gates” they were told.

The day included on site tours of the Vehicle Integration Bay, the Electromagnetic Environmental Effects Lab, and the Air Traffic Control simulation and training center, which also happens to include the Meteorology and Antarctica Remote Operations Facility, where air traffic is controlled for the the South Pole!SPARWAR

Commanding Officer Captain Scott Heller addressed the students over lunch and encouraged them to persist through college to be best prepared for the many career pathways available at SPAWAR and throughout the world, both for enlisted military and civilian contractors.

Special thanks to the event organizers team led by LaKeisha Williams and the wonderful SPAWAR education team.
