Partnerships that work
Business and community partnerships are an essential factor in preparing students for life after high school. Oftentimes, these partnerships result in job shadowing or internship opportunities. However, the unique partnership between McGavock High School's Academy of Health Science and Law and the Metro Nashville Police Department has resulted in some pretty astonishing student accomplishments. Read their story, originally published in the Metro Nashville Police Department newsletter, below.
Crime Scene Investigator Felicia Evans volunteered last fall to mentor and coach the McGavock High School Crime Scene Team. Throughout the school year, Ms. Evans has been teaching students how to properly identify and process crime scene evidence. The McGavock team participated in the SkillsUSA-Tennessee Crime Scene Competition with six others schools from Tennessee. Although it was close, McGavock won the state competition- qualifying them for nationals!
