On Saturday, April 8th at LCHS, students grades 7-12 and alumni are gathering for the Challenge Success: Building Your Path event. The goal of the day is for current and former LCHS students to see various professionals showcase their career and/or education paths with the overarching idea to challenge our traditionally narrow definitions of success.
The day will begin with two short keynotes featuring Dr. Mark Urata of Children's’ Hospital and Chris Buck, animator and director. Then students will be able to choose three speaker sessions before having lunch. The speaker sessions will feature a variety of topics such as career pathway stories; life, education or career lessons learned; current career showcases, and potential how-to talks, all within the big idea of expanding our definition of success.
Our parent and local community all-stars will be out in force to support this much needed message by sharing their career stories in business, education, health and medicine, sports, science and technology, law, politics, music, arts, and entertainment among others.
After lunch, the speakers will have small group mentoring sessions allowing students to ask specific and targeted questions.
