During APS’ College and Career Motivation week, Deerwood Academy invited professionals from throughout the metro Atlanta area into the school to speak to students about the importance of education, discipline, and how actions and decisions can impact their future careers.
The purpose of the College and Career Motivation Week is to encourage and inspire students to focus on success in school as they plan for college. CCMW is also designed to make students more aware of career options and help them better prepare to compete in a global society.
Mr. Martin Jongue, an author and motivational speaker, served as the keynote speaker for the young men of Deerwood. The keynote speaker for the girls’ program was award-winning artist Mrs. Regina Bell-Battle. Deerwood Academy would like to thank all of the professionals who took time out of their busy schedules to speak with students about future career opportunities.
