One year ago today, we completed work and opened a professional nursing training room for Grady HS students with funds I was able to secure, in addition to a brand new culinary kitchen.
What a timely investment for our students as we prepare the next generation of healthcare heroes to defeat this pandemic and other healthcare challenges.
This added career-based education space uniquely equips students with real-life healthcare delivery experiences. Students in this nursing program obtain internships to local hospitals to deepen their connection to their preferred career field, adding to their college and career readiness. In total, the investments I’ve secured for Grady HS surpass $2 million to increase opportunities for our students in career fields that research shows continue to grow and flourish in NYC.
Good luck to our great students and I look forward to sharing more wonderful education news in our community.
