Summit Education Initiative (SEI) printed two new rack cards this fall to complete its “Enrolled, Employed or Enlisted” collection. Now, students in Summit County who are interested in becoming employed or enlisting in the military after high school graduation also have tip cards for each option.
This fall, bright, colorful posters will find new homes along the walls of high school buildings in Summit County. Read more about the “Three Es” poster in this story.
Isaiah Sears-Gooding remembers the first time he met Marines. “They made an impact on my life,” he says. Sears-Gooding, a Kenmore High School senior who decided to graduate from Akron Public Schools after moving several times during his childhood, had participated in an activity day after a week of testing in grade school. Marines helped coordinate this special day for students, which included snacks and games. “When I talked to the Marines during the event, they seemed professional; I liked their uniforms,” Sears-Gooding says. He recalls seeing similar uniforms in video games that depict combat on screens, but actually meeting Marines made Sears-Gooding realize just how real those situations can be.
