Opportunities For Businesses to
Support the Class of 2019
(A Note From Cleveland High School)
Cleveland High School counselors have been working hard with the Class of 2019 all year to help create post secondary plans that will lead to successful careers for our graduates. We plan to host our 1st Annual "Make a Plan Day" for the CvHS Class of 2019 on Wednesday, April 17 from 8:00-10:00am in our Media Center.  We would love for you to participate. We would run it using a career fair model where students and parents could browse opportunities during the event. The targeted audience would be any Senior in Johnston County  who does not have a solid plan or would like to consider his or her options. Ideally, we are looking for businesses who hire students right out of high school. We would like to invite area businesses to consider sponsoring a scholarship for the Class of 2019. Businesses or individuals can set the amount, criteria, name, etc. Contact Kim Lewter for more information.
