Posted on 04/04/2018

VICTORVILLE — Nearly 80 speakers visited Victor Valley High School on Friday, March 23, for the school’s second annual Career Day, and students were also treated to a performance by rapper Famous Uno.


All students in the school attended four different sessions with their choice of speakers from a wide range of fields including medicine, sports, law enforcement, the military, politics, law, the arts, journalism and more.


“We started this last year with a focus on college and career readiness, to get kids excited about what is out there,” VVHS Principal Nancy Noyer said. “But it also brings the community into our school and shows them what our kids are really all about. Several of the presenters commented on how receptive the students were and that the students asked great questions.”


Student volunteers ushered the guest speakers into the signup area and classrooms, and VVHS culinary students cooked breakfast for the guests. Noyer said this year’s Career Day was organized by VVHS AVID Coordinator Shannen Avila.


Among the speakers was Dr. Raquel Grogan-Webb, a 2004 VVHS graduate who was a star soccer player for the Jackrabbits (then known as Raquel White) and now a successful chiropractor. Daily Press photographer James Quigg spoke to students about photography and journalism.


After the career day presentations, students were treated to two lunchtime performances by Famous Uno, a rapper who is popular with many of the students.


“The kids didn’t believe us that he was really going to be here and I said, ‘yes, he is!’ ” Noyer said. “Both years, the kids really enjoyed Career Day.” Members of SB Sheriff's Dept. Famous Uno
