High School High Tech Career Fair

Published: Thursday, December 5, 2013 at 08:53 AM.

Allison Chase, Program Director, for the ABLE Trust, which provides partial funding for the High School High Tech Program in Gulf County through Dyslexia Research Institute in Tallahassee presented Port St. Joe’s High School Principal, Jeremy Knapp with an award which recognized HSHT in Port St. Joe by the ABLE Trust as the #1 High School High Tech program in the State of Florida for 2013. 

Chase bragged on the success of the Port St Joe program, stating that even though small and rural, it was one of the most outstanding in Florida.  Without our local business partner’s participation, the program could not be successful. 

Melissa Behee spoke to the group about becoming more involved, how the students are worked with all year and have to “earn” the right to participate in the paid interships during the summer through citizenship, community service, involvement in school activities etc.

One of the immediate community service projects for the HSHT students is to participate in the Gulf County Sheriff Toy Drive and play Santa’s Helpers to sort the toys that are collected.

Should you like to become involved as a mentor or business partner with the High School High Tech Program of Gulf County, please contact Melissa Behee, Program Director at melissabehee@gmail.com.
