EUREKA, Calif. — Eureka High School is being recognized for its outstanding education program promoting college and career readiness with a Career Choices Gold Medal.

As a Career Choices Medal School, Eureka High School is among 35 schools across the nation that have exemplified an eagerness to promote student success with the Career Choices series
program. The Career Choices series program, alongside, helps students plot achievable 10-year plans for their future education and career goals.

Mindy Bingham, author of the Career Choices series, said being awarded a Career Choices Medal is a great accomplishment for programs that promote student success and improved college and career readiness.

“It requires solid leadership, top-notch teachers, and a lot of hard work,” Bingham said. “Many of the schools we work with are committed to that level of excellence, and that is reflected in their careful planning, intentional implementation of our materials, and dedication to ongoing improvement.”

Savannah Smith, a teacher at Eureka High School, said there is a strong culture of college and career preparedness at Eureka High.

“Students have more concrete plan for their future now,” Smith said. “The conversations we’re having are much more individualized and student driven.”
