Choice Bus Choices

Life Choices from a School Bus
Choice BusThe Choice Bus travels around the country to help students realize the reality of their choices.  The Cabell County Alternative School received a visit on October 25, 2018.  It was a great time!

Students walked inside a transportable prison cell.  They learned of the many inconveniences of being in prison such as a thin mat on a metal bunk bed, no privacy, and a 3:30 am wake up call.  They also learned that 75% of inmates never finished high school.  They learned that it is almost impossible for a high school dropout to get a meaningful job.  They learned that a college graduate will earn $1 million more over their lifetime than a high school dropout.

The presenter urged students to surround themselves 1/3 with people they want to be like one day, 1/3 with peers who are heading their same direction, and 1/3 with people that they can mentor and help.

This was a great experience.  Thanks to State Farm for funding it!
