For several weeks on Regional Radio News, we've been highlighting the opportunity for Clinton High School students down the road to participate in a business elective course.
That type of opportunity has been one that has been explored for a few years within the district of what they would need to do to make it happen. Superintendent Curt Nettles says in the midst of their exploring, the Midland Institute came forward with a great opportunity for their students.
After meeting with High School Principal Jerry Wayne and then another with a few others from the community, Nettles says it was determined this was something they should begin to approach the community with.
Nettles says they are ready to move forward and start seeking out investors from the community. He explains that is what make the program unique in that the community invests in it to get it up and running.
Nettles hopes to get the drive started in getting local businesses on board with the program this summer and have it introduced to start the 2018-19 school year.
