Delmar students meet with Gov. Carney to promote career readiness

DOVER, Del. –  Students at Delmar High School got to spend part of their day with Governor John Carney, Wednesday afternoon.

Over at Dover’s Legislative Hall, Governor Carney met and spoke with students involved in the Jobs for Delaware Graduates program. The program is one of Carney’s education initiatives that’s designed to make sure that students that graduate from “high school college” are career ready. Officials say the purpose of the organization is to address Delaware’s unemployment and drop out rates, by making sure students are properly equipped for the real world.

“It’s really focused on preparing high school students for the workforce to go into a career with the kind of skills that are necessary to do that in terms of interviewing, resume writing and getting them to focus on what it is that they exactly want to do,” says Governor Carney.

Carney adds that more than 60,000 students across the First State have taken part in the Jobs for Delaware Graduates program so far.
