Students maintain jobs in tough times
“The whole key is the partnerships with the businesses,” Career Academy school-to-work coordinator Billy Graham said. “We have older adults looking for jobs, and employers want someone who can work more hours. But even with the economy the way it is, some businesses are still allowing us to go in and place the students.”
Graham said many of the school’s students are from low-income backgrounds and are able to help out their families financially during these hard times.
