Ribbon Cutting for American Education
On December 9, 2022, Civic Memorial High School held a ribbon-cutting event for its new American Education program, which started during the Fall semester. The "grow your own" program allows students to begin working towards their teacher's certification while earning four credits from Lewis and Clark Community College. This innovative program is the first step in helping solve the teacher shortage problem that plagues many communities across Illinois and throughout the nation. All students enrolled in this program are guaranteed a job interview upon completing their teacher certification. This program is an example of how hard work and multiple stakeholders coming together can be a part of the solution to solving the teacher shortage. #GoEagles
