Kids are finding new ways to learn, and teens are no different. Food is not the only thing they hunger for.
“Students are hungry for other ways to learn,” said Donneta Oremus, CTE coordinator for the Marysville School District.
Oremus was referring to the students at the Arts and Tech High School on the Tulalip campus. Many of these students take Career and Technical Education classes. Some people are also part of a program called JAG, also known as Jobs for America’s Graduates.
If not for Arts and Tech, Jesse Petitte, Addison Maldanado, Tyler Griffith and Nathan Flynn said they may have quit school.
Through JAG, Nathan was introduced to the military and has enlisted in the National Guard. He originally attended for the robotics program. He plans to go to college on the GI Bill when his enlistment is over.
