    This is my 13th year serving as Career Development Coordinator for Southern Alamance High School and Southern Middle School.  I am responsible for coordinating career development services for all students and for establishing and maintaining business/education partnerships that support the school system's mission and individual school's School Improvement Plans.  I serve all students by building links with the school staff, business/industry representatives, post-secondary education personnel, military, parents, and civic and community organizations.  Working collaboratively with the school staff and coordinating the support services of the business community, I facilitate student transition from school to career.  Come see me and let me help you with your Career Planning! 
    Also, please check out our Career & Technical Education Department page, listed under "Departments" on the Southern Alamance High School home page!
