ACADEMICS: CAT Students Train in Disney World

Ten of our Carolina Alliance for Technology (CAT) computer science and engineering students scored a 5 on the WorkKeys test last spring, and as a result were selected to participate in the Youth Education Series at Disney World. The Blazer contingent of Mikasia Caree, Trenequia Chandler, Johnaida Eliscar, Aaron Ford, Jazzmin Graham, Chris Greene, Jaylen Phillips, Aaron Walker, Jerod Walker and Trinity Yates traveled to Disney World earlier this week. On the first day, the students participated in a program titled Manage Your Brand, where they learned how to formulate strategies for personal and professional success, planning for a promising future, and discovering how to navigate unexpected career highs and lows. On the second day, the students learned about Walt Disney's leadership and teamwork strategies and how to apply them to achieve stronger collaborations kills, increase confidence and set a course for success. In both programs, our students were able to practice teamwork, critical thinking and problem-solving skills as the group participated in one-of-a-kind moments using the magic of Disney to make learning more impactful. It was a tremendous experience that combined fun and learning!
