GREER STUDENTS ARE CRUSHING IT!
Greer High School and Bonds Career Center are putting the PLUS in G+, and when it comes to being career ready, Greer students are CRUSHING IT!
Seniors who go to Bonds in the afternoons have been practicing soft skills they will need in the workforce.

So far in the “Survivor-type” contest, students have had to create a resume, do speed interviews, and practice networking with business professionals. The competition is getting tougher by the week! Round 1 started with more than 100 students. Next Monday, the Top 10 will compete in Round 3: The Circle of Doom! In this networking round, students will have to navigate touchy topics such as politics, religion, and social issues in a professional setting. HALF of the Top 10 are Greer High seniors. Please wish the following students the best of luck in Monday's competition. Nigel Drakeford, Bonds Firefighting; Olivia Beason, Bonds Welding; Ellie Roberts, Bonds I.T.; Irving Gomez, Bonds Welding; Marbelin Arias, Bonds Esthetics; Jaimya’he Rice (first alternate), Bonds Mechatronics.
