Magnolia Middle School’s 8th grade students took a day from their regular classroom obligations to learn more about careers that interest them through a program named Pathways2Possibilities (P2P). P2P is an interactive career expo designed for 8th grade students only and is held every year at the Mississippi Coast Convention Center in Biloxi. Coastal students are granted an opportunity to experience a variety of 19 pathways, which are aligned with the career Pathways set forth by the Mississippi Department of Education.
Pathways2Possibilities main goal is to engage, educate and empower students of their career potential lifelong possibilities. P2P sponsors and members design and implement hands-on activities intended to inspire the students to further explore a particular career. MMS students have been working with their Instructional Computer teachers, Ms. Dedeaux and Mrs. Cunningham, to prepare and familiarize themselves with Pathways. This event is designed to encourage the students and guide their high school Pathway choice. Many businesses and industries, such as, Mississippi Power, Chevron, Hancock Bank, NASA, Medical Centers, Radio Stations, and Construction Companies participated in this event.
