The 100% Graduation is Clarksville’s Business committee and presenting business sponsors announce the first ever Get Motivated…2016 assembly for all Clarksville-Montgomery County freshmen. This assembly will be held at the Dunn Center on the campus of Austin Peay State University with all high schools on Thursday, Sept. 27 from 10 a.m. – 11 a.m. Winners Inc. is presenting speaker Keith Davis, a former NFL player and Academic All-American who will help engage, enlighten, and empower students through his personal story to be successful. The assembly, which is sponsored by One Hour Heating and Cooling, Daymar Institute, Fort Campbell Federal Credit Union and the CMC Education Foundation will highlight the following and much more: • Challenging your freshmen students to graduate high school and pursue college
• Help ease the transition from middle school to high school
• Encourage your students to make the right choices and not fall victim to peer pressure
• Inspire your students to set goals and take action
• And much more…
Both city and county elected bodies have adopted resolutions supporting 100% graduation in this community because they too believe it is possible for ALL students to earn a high school diploma. Partners in the 100% Graduation will continue to assist the school district in providing creative ways to help students stay on track and have all the tools necessary to graduate . Through real life scenarios and demonstrations during this assembly, each student will learn strategies to overcome challenges through what the presenters say is an interactive educational seminar combined with entertainment! All freshmen will be given the opportunity to take this field trip at no cost thanks to sponsors, but CMCSS must have the signed permission slip fully completed and returned to your student’s school. We also encourage each student to display school spirit by wearing their school colors! Each student will be required to sit in an assigned section of the Dunn Center with their own school and teachers.
