Career Cafés Program

EGMMS plans to present a program after the holidays, called Career Cafés, which is designed to involve a series of speakers who will talk about their professions to our Year 2 students. The program will be presented to small groups of students in the Media Center in 30-45 minute sessions starting at 12:45.

Please contact Ms. Scroggs at or at 919-662-2878 if you, a friend, a relative, a member of your church, or a business contact would enjoy talking about what they do, or did, for a living. Please respond as soon as possible, as guest speakers must go through the volunteer approval process.

Per the survey the students filled out, we are specifically looking for volunteers in the following fields:

Athletes/Sports Trainers
Video Game programmer
Business Owner
Fine Arts, which might be musicians, actors, dancers, artists, or models)
Entertainment Manager
Fashion Design

Thank you.
