Reaching The End of The Road Less Traveled

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

(from “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost)

To all our 2015 graduates:

Last night you, along with family and friends, celebrated your choice to take the road less traveled. It was not an easy journey. That road had obstacles that slowed you down, perhaps even stopped you completely for a time. But you kept moving forward, working steadily toward your goal, and now you can say, “I did it!” Enjoy this moment and be proud of your accomplishment. And tomorrow, set yourself a new goal, choose a new challenge, continue down that road less traveled and enjoy the journey!  Congratulations!

This image from last night pretty much sums up the evening.

  • Business

To all the juniors and seniors from Burns, Cleveland Early College, Crest, Kings Mountain, and Shelby who participated in Career Day, thank you for visiting. We hope you were inspired to find your passion. Whatever your interest, we hope you find the career that is just right for you.

High school is a wonderful time in your life, and it goes by more quickly than you may realize. Enjoy it, but also use it. Think about the classes and the activities you enjoy the most. Take advantage of the resources you have in your teachers, counselors, parents and others. Finding the career that fits you is a journey, but you don’t have to travel alone.

CCC Welcomes High School Students

April 2, 2015 is Career Day at Cleveland Community College. We are welcoming nearly 2,000 juniors and seniors from Burns, Cleveland Early College, Crest, Shelby and Kings Mountain high schools.

Students, we want you to explore careers you think you are interested in, and be open to finding out about careers you have never considered or didn’t know existed. Professionals with first-hand experience in a variety of careers will be on-hand to talk with you. Take advantage of the opportunity. Ask questions. Talk with them about their experiences and what they like about their jobs.

We hope Career Day sparks interest and opens up possibilities to explore. We also hope that at the end of the day you don’t simply put away the information you collected, but that you will use this day as a starting point.

Choosing a career is a big step in life. It takes some thought, planning, and effort, but you can find a career that you’ll enjoy.
