  • Learning careers through APES

    A student who learns while in high school about the different kinds of job opportunities and what they entail can make a more informed decision upon graduating and entering a chosen field.

    I took Cissal Hill Road and made my way up to the top of the ridge. It was a gray misty sort of morning, perfect for photographing the vibrant redbuds because there isn’t any color competition and the light wouldn’t be direct, it’s more diffused.
