Career programs at Sequoyah High School and Woodstock High School have received a boost from a Canton business.
Pilgrim’s donated $5,000 each to Sequoyah’s and Woodstock’s Family, Career and Community Leaders of America programs, through its Hometown Strong initiative.
Through the career education and service clubs, students explore careers, participate in community service projects, and compete in career-related contests at the Region and State level. The national organization’s programs most directly support Career Pathways in Human Services, Hospitality and Tourism, Education and Training, and Visual Arts and Design.
Teacher Molly Miller, who serves as an advisor of the Sequoyah club, said the donation will be used to support community service projects and to provide FCCLA conference and event scholarships to students who otherwise couldn’t afford to participate.
“We are so appreciative to receive this donation and have the opportunity to help our county with service projects,” Ms. Miller said.
Woodstock teacher and FCCLA advisor Adrienne Fagan said the donated funds will be used to support community service projects.
