B-CC Celebrates 20 Years of Mentorship Program
The Montgomery County Council honored Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School, the Greater Bethesda-Chevy Chase Chamber of Commerce and the Junior Achievement program of Greater Washington last week on the 20th year of Career Partnership Day. The program matches up about 200 B-CC juniors and seniors with professionals at area businesses to explain the ins and outs of a work day, an attempt to teach students the connection between learning and earning money. The groups held a formal celebration in September at Imagination Stage. Last week, Chamber President Ginanne Italiano, B-CC principal Karen Lockard and Junior Achievement's Ed Grenier and Charles Atwell were on hand to receive a council proclamation on the anniversary from Council President Roger Berliner (D-Bethesda-Potomac).
