New Albany High School kicked off its “Career Speakers of the Week” in January. Each week NAHS will host a “Career Speaker of the Week” in the media center during lunch. Each week speakers representing different careers will speak to students who are specifically interested in pursuing a career in that area. During January, the focus was on “Careers in Physical Therapy” and “Careers in Engineering”.
