Dennis Eastman, Nova Academy principal and Assemblyman Jose Solorio
Santa Ana’s Nova Academy held a very successful Career Day on Oct. 27. Assemblyman Jose Solorio stopped by to make opening remarks. Then the students heard from numerous professionals in breakout sessions leading up to lunch.
Nova’s students are on a dual educational path that includes both college and high school simultaneously. The idea behind their Career Day was to help them to prepare a career by listening, first hand, to individuals with experience in that career field.
Speakers included doctors, lawyers, a forensic lab specialist, and other area professionals. Below are a few pictures from the event:
