students at JMU

On Thursday, December 8th, a group of Luray Middle School 7th graders participated in a college readiness/career exploration field trip. They learned about the different routes for post-graduation education and training (trade schools, community college, 4-year institutions), and then they spent the rest of the day exploring different areas of the college - the planetarium, the music education department, and the athletics department.  The remainder of our 7th graders will take this trip in the spring.  It was an enjoyable, eye-opening experience for our students.  Many thanks to JMU for helping our students glimpse possibilities for their futures.
