Thank You to Karen Arguelles and Sam Loomis
SMMS 8th grade Cyber Foundations students send many thanks to Mrs. Karen Arguelles and Mrs. Sam Loomis of The Peoples Bank for spending the day discussing banking, finance, credit, the numerous career possibilities, and so much more with them. Both women explained how to establish credit and stressed the importance of building and maintaining a good credit score. They described how the finance industry depends upon technology and how employees must continue to update their education and training throughout their careers. The students and teachers were surprised to hear that working in banking and finance is actually very interesting and satisfying.
Thank You to Tina Seymour Demoran
The 8th grade Cyber Foundations classes would like to say "Thank You!!" to Mrs. Tina Seymour Demoran, JD, RRT for spending the whole day with the students and techers explaining her level of education, her job as a lawyer, and the impact technology has had on the legal profession. Mrs. Demoran is a St. Martin High class of 1990 graduate. She encouraged everyone to treat everyone with kindness, work hard, and find a career that they will love. Mrs. Demoran stressed to students that college is not for everyone and that many well-paying careers can be attained by completing career and technical programs. Thank you, Mrs. Demoran, for supporting your community!
Thank You to Jennifer Cartwright
In October, the 8th grade classes had a guest speaker come talk to all the technology classes. Mrs. Jennifer Cartwright is the Database Marketing Manager at the Hard Rock Casino Biloxi. She discussed the level of education she has and the level of education and skills needed to obtain a job like hers. Database marketing uses computer programs including Microsoft programs, web based coding, and programs built/designed in house specifically for the Hard Rock to aide in day-to-day tasks . Mrs. Cartwright stressed good digital citizenship to the students as more colleges and employers look to social media as a part of their acceptance and hiring processes. She also encouraged the students to be honest when filling out applications and being interviewed. From St. Martin Middle School Cyber Foundations Teachers and Students "Thank You Mrs. Cartwright!".
