Chloe Coleman, a sophomore at Theodore Roosevelt College and Career Academy in Gary, came in 1st Place for her career goal presentation on becoming a neurosurgeon at this year’s Northwest Indiana Jobs for America Career Development Conference. Chloe now advances on to the state-wide Career Development Finals in March.
The Jobs for America effort is part of the Center for Workplace Innovations “READY NWI” initiative to accelerate year-by-year progress in engaging students and their parents with a wide array of educational and occupational choices that lead directly to success in employment and with post-high school degree and credential attainment.
Their goal is by 2025, to have a talent pool available for Northwest Indiana employers where 60 percent or more of the labor force has a college degree or high-value post-high school credential aligned with employers’ specific needs.
Congratulations to Chloe, and to all of the Roosevelt College and Career Academy JAG students.
