Since its inception in 2005, the Bank of America Student Leaders Program has recognized more than 2,500 exemplary high school juniors and seniors who have a passion for improving their communities.  The program helps students gain a greater understanding of how nonprofits create impact in the community and helps develop them as the next generation of community leaders through two components:


·         A summer eight-week paid internship with a nonprofit organization selected by the bank. This internship is designed to provide opportunities for the students to develop and apply leadership skills through hands-on work experience, while raising their awareness of community issues addressed by their Host Organization.

Georgia Tech Women in Engineering Program

The Georgia Tech Women in Engineering Program is excited to announce the 18th annual Engineering Career Conference (ECC) for current female junior and senior high school students.

ECC is designed to give high school girls knowledge and information about the eleven engineering disciplines offered at Georgia Tech to help them decide if they’d like to study engineering in college, and, if so, which type of engineering is best for them.

This year’s ECC will be held on Thursday, October 5, 2017 from 8:30AM to 4:00PM in the Georgia Tech Student Center Ballroom. Over the course of a day, prospective female students have the opportunity to hear directly from Georgia Tech’s world-renowned faculty and current Tech students about the various engineering majors offered at GT. In addition, attendees have the chance to meet with a GT Admissions Counselor to find out about the admissions process and the academic requirements necessary to be successful in engineering undergraduate programs.

The non-refundable registration fee for ECC is $25, which covers all materials as well as breakfast and lunch for each girl attending the program, and breakfast for parents or guardians and teachers. The application link may be found at

Taste of Smyrna–Volunteers Needed!

See the message from Mr. Penick below–this is a big deal for us, so consider volunteering!

Taste of Smyrna is happening on September 16th, and the IB Program partners with Smyrna Education Foundation to sell drinks that day.  The primary goal is to help them raise money to give grants to the schools in our area.  The secondary goal is to represent our school and program well during this community event so more people will have a positive image of CHS (and IB).  I really, really need responsible, motivated, enthusiastic people to volunteer for this b/c it’s a big showcase for our school.  The sign up genius below has the slots and times available—everything is in two-hour shifts, so it’s not the whole day that you volunteer.  

You can email me ([email protected]) with questions if you have them.

One of the reps from Smyrna Education Foundation will be here next Friday, Sept 15th, during lunch to talk about what you will be doing.  If you sign up, plan to be in Mr. Jones’ room (902) during D and E lunch to meet with that person.
