MYGV_outreach_jan2016In honor of “National School Choice Week,” MYcroSchool Gainesville students had the opportunity to visit with recruiters from the Army, as well as a representative from City College.

 

Staff Sergeants Jacqueline Lopez and Carmelo Nell spoke with students about careers in the military while Ms. Kimberly Bowden-Cooper was on campus to discuss college options.

Ms. Tanaka Gates, the Certified Navigator with Meridian Behavioral Healthcare, Inc. was on hand to assist students with enrolling in the Healthcare Marketplace Insurance program.
