The School Counseling Department was so excited to kick off our ‘Lunch and Learn: Career Series’ today! Our first professional speaker was Gino Piccolino, Senior Software Architect and Founder of Precision Point of Sale. The purpose of our career series is to provide our students an opportunity to meet a professional in their field of interest and to learn more about that field in order for them to make more informed decisions about future career paths. It was a very informative session that gave our students more information about the computer science field. Thanks again to Mr. Piccolino! Our students had a lot of great questions and we are very proud of them for taking advantage of this experience!
