Sweetwater Fire Chief Grant Madden stopped by Sweetwater Middle School on Friday, Nov. 18, 2011 as part of the Speaker's Bureau sponsored by SEED (Sweetwater Enterprise of Economic Development).
The Eighth Grade Career Investigations classes at SMS, taught by Irene Armstrong, learned about ways to approach and prepare for careers from Madden.
The Speaker's Bureau not only takes place in Sweetwater ISD but in the Roscoe school district as well. Its purpose is four-fold: linking the business world to the classroom from a local standpoint, showing students to a variety of opportunities within their community, presenting the importance and connection of math and science within the speaker's occupation and allowing for interactivity among the speaker and the students during the presentation.
At SMS, three other dates are scheduled leading up to the Christmas holidays with other dates being planned for the second semester after the New Year. Sweetwater Mayor Greg Wortham was the speaker on Friday, Nov. 4, 2011.
