WalMart Foundation Community Action Grant Awarded to Homer High School

Homer High School has received a Community Action Grant in the amount of $750.00. The grant funds will be used to create a Career Learning Station in the school Media Center.  This dedicated space will give students the information, materials, and technology they need to explore career choices and plan successfully for the future.  Students will be able to research job opportunities, locate and complete job applications, print cover letters, resumes and applications, and prepare portfolios for prospective employers.  Principal Lee Simms and Mrs. Kourtney Smith, guidance counselor, visited the Walmart store in Minden last week to purchase a new HP Chromebook for the Career Learning Station.  The Minden store location (Facility #87) supported the grant, which is funded by the Walmart Foundation.
