From Ryan Kryska’s article on the MLive website:
Two years ago, Western Career Prep High School decided it was going to change.
Yes, it’s still an alternative school, but its students don’t necessarily fit that stereotype, and leaders in the community are taking notice.
The school is being awarded on Thursday, Jan. 26, as the Jackson Chamber of Commerce’s 2017 Reach HIRE Award recipient.
“The work they are doing is innovative and showing results,” Chamber of Commerce President Mindy Bradish-Orta said. “The business community needs what they are doing.”
The school’s curriculum is individually based and focuses on the field each student wants to work in.
