Students in the IMPACTO program attend “Get on the Grid MS”

Get on the Grid

Students in the IMPACTO program at New Albany High School were in attendance on Monday, October 29 at the ICC-Belden Campus for the launch of “Get on the Grid MS”, a website designed to connect high school students with career opportunities within Mississippi.   U.S. Senators Roger Wicker and Cindy Hyde Smith were both in attendance at the event.

The IMPACTO (Industries as a Means to Prepare for Academic, Career, & Technology Opportunities) program is an innovative, pilot program which provides Career Readiness classes to students and prepares them for a summer internship.  The IMPACTO program is partially funded by the Toyota Wellspring Fund, which is  administered by the CREATE Foundation.
