Lavaca Seniors prepared today to enter the real world. Today was the 15th Annual Senior Seminar hosted by Lavaca High School. Lavaca seniors spent the day learning basic first aid and CPR, as well as how to write a resume and interview for jobs in the work force.
Lavaca High School Principal, Felicia Owen made the following statement about this annual event, “LHS started Senior Seminar approximately 15 years ago in an effort to prepare students for job interviews, resume writing, and financial planning. Today’s seminar also includes CPR and basic first aid training to meet the state requirement for all students in Arkansas. There were 6 sessions of mock interviews that included both one on one and panel interviews. Prior to the mock interviews, Whirlpool Senior Analyst, Gina Bowen, taught the seniors about interview etiquette and dos/don’ts of the interview process. Principal, Felicia Owen, would like to express sincere appreciation for all the community members and businesses that partnered with LHS to make today’s event a success!!”
