JAG students placed 1st in State for Commercial

E. C. Central JAG students placed 1st for Commercial at the Indiana State Career Development Conference held at Ivy Tech Community College in Indianapolis.  Mr. Raymond Davis wants to thank the East Chicago Central family for their support of the JAG Program.  The Commercial will compete at the National Competition in Washington DC in August of 2017.   

National Hispanic College Fair

E.C. Central students  visited the National Hispanic College Fair and Louder Than a Bomb on Friday, March 17th, and Saturday, March 18th.  On Friday morning students visited with college representatives from over 60 institutions hosted by Moraine Valley College in Palos Hills, Illinois.  Representatives were able to answer questions about admissions, scholarships, and other opportunities for students from diverse families and those who will be among the first in their families to attend college. 

On Saturday evening students visited Roosevelt University in downtown Chicago to hear poetry written and performed by high school students from all over Chicago, suburbs , and Northwest Indiana.  The poems described so many of the struggles that our East Chicago students face and many of our students were brought to tears.

Our students had a chance to meet positive people of all ages from outside of East Chicago and to create lifelong memories with their classmates from Central.  Dr. Finley is greatly appreciated allowing me to help them gain these experiences that will help shape their decisions about their futures.  Thank you Dr. Finley for remembering that learning takes place outside of the classroom as well!  (submitted by Alex Ortiz, AP English teacher)

Student Highlights

Central High School has many students who are accomplishing great things!  Today we introduce to you Mardonio Diaz and Omar Rivera.  Mardonio is a member of the National Honor Society and plans to attend Valparaiso University in Indiana.  He plans to major in Computer Science with a focus on Security.  He feels that taking Advanced Placement and Dual Credit classes has well prepared him for college.  

Omar Rivera has also been accepted to attend Valparaiso University.  He plans to major in Civil Engineering with a minor in Business.  "As I look around this city, I see much needed improvements, specifically the lake front...this is the kind of career that I am looking for," said Omar.

We are excited to share that both of these students received a full scholarship to Valparaiso University!
