In Need of Mentorship Sponsors

It’s that time of year when I begin searching for mentors for the academic year 2010-2011. We continue to have a variety of professions in which students are interested (see list below). If you (or someone you know) would like to mentor a senior next year, please contact sparker@gsgis.k12.va.us. This is a wonderful experience for our students, as well as an opportunity for students to contribute to organizations/business throughout the area.
