HEALTHCARE CAREER EXPLORATION COMES TO LAKE COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL
On Friday, April 22, 2022, Lake County High School (LCHS) hosted a joint healthcare event involving local healthcare employers and Dyersburg State Community College (DSCC). First, five senior level students engaged in healthcare curriculum at the high school participated in mock interviews. Zabian Sanders of Signature Healthcare in Ridgely and Jennifer Bentley of Lake County Primary Care served as the interviewers, enabling the students to prepare for the employment interview in healthcare careers, as well as post-secondary healthcare programs which require interviews as part of the application process.
