Earlier this week, seniors at Jack Yates HS presented their culminating, capstone projects at a Career Readiness Portfolio Showcase. This is where Yates seniors, who have studied in the school’s Communication & Maritime Academy, highlight four years of development and training in the fields of commercial photography, printing technology, film-making, radio journalism, and maritime studies.
Community and industry partners were invited to attend the Showcase, to evaluate student portfolios. Partners who observe particularly exceptional projects are highly inclined to offer students scholarships, internships, part-time jobs, or even observations from the observer’s company, that help the student grow and develop in their field of interest.
Check out some of the highlights from this event below, and if you have any questions or would like to support Yates in this effort next school year, contact the campus’ Magnet Program at YatesMagnet@HoustonISD.org / 713-748-5400 ext. 344.
