“The academy program has impacted my future for the better and I am happy to be a product of it. As a sophomore at Cane Ridge High School, I became a member of the Interactive Multimedia Pathway and began to learn more about the actual softwares used in the field today. My high school was actually giving me tools I could use after I graduated and that separated me from my competition. One of the coolest skills I learned was how to create and develop our own website so we could market ourselves or a business. As I matriculated through the academy I became an Academy Ambassador because I was proud of what my academy had taught me and I wanted to show that to my fellow students. During my senior year, my academic excellence within my academy led me to a full ride scholarship to college as well as a summer intern position in the technical department of Hospital Corporation of America. The skills I learned in my academy set me apart to get the intern position but they also kept me interested in my school so I continued to excel. The academies have made a positive mark on myself and my future.”
