Waynesville-St. Robert Area Chamber of Commerce volunteers presented the CHOICES program to the Waynesville School District this Monday. This year due to COVID-19 protocol, it was provided to 315 Waynesville eighth-graders via Zoom through a 45-minute presentation. The main goal of the CHOICES program is connecting with the students and showing them there are many things to consider when planning their futures. A core principle discussed during the presentation is the power of making important decisions today that will impact you positively in your future. Emphasis was made on creating important habits in regards to education that will carry on to future careers and opportunities. The CHOICES program uses interactive exercises to help students learn the impact of their choices and how to take control of their lives through wise decision-making in different areas of life such as time and money management as well as education.
