Marshall County High School celebrated Vocational Education Week February 12-16. During that time, several vocational teachers invited guest speakers into their classrooms to talk with the students about various topics.

On Monday, Kenneth Anderson was the keynote speaker during a school-wide assembly. His topic was "Preparation for Separation."

Kim Anderson's business classes took advice from Betsy Ledford of Ledford Employee Exchange about job interviewing skills. Debra Allen's marketing students and Linda Prince's housing students were visited by MCHS graduate Donna Corlew, the Director of Marketing with Looney, Ricks and Kiss Associates in Nashville.

FCCLA members are conducting activities to support the Ronald McDonald House in Nashville. DECA members have just finished with regional DECA competition at MTSU.

On March 16, all seniors enrolled in vocational education classes will have the opportunity to further their knowledge of vocational careers by attending Vocational Career Day at Columbia State Community College.

MCHS teachers received treats throughout the week from the various vocational organizations: DECA (marketing education), FCCLA (consumer science), BPA (business education), and FFA (agriculture).
