School Year Pathways

Class Presentations/Activities

We offer a variety of health careers and college exploration activities as guest speaker presentations to high school classes.  These visits are appropriate for PLTW Biomed classes, AP and other advanced science and math electives, JAG / career exploration classes, and career center health science classes. These presentations are customizable to fit different time frames and the needs of particular schools and classes. Interested teachers should contact Crystal McQueen ( for more details.

AHEC Days Job Shadowing Support

We collaborate with local hospitals and high schools to provide an "AHEC Days" curriculum that includes clinical skills, health careers exploration, and college success activities.  The AHEC Days curriculum is combined with health care job shadowing experiences and scheduled as part of the school day.  Interested students at the schools listed below are advised to talk to their counselor about scheduling senior year job-shadowing courses at their particular school.

Current partners include:

Margaret Mary Health along with Batesville, Franklin County, and Milan High Schools and Oldenburg Academy

Decatur County Memorial Hospital along with Greensburg High School, North & South Decatur High Schools, and Oldenburg Academy
