On Tuesday February 11th, Hampton High School AFJROTC held its annual Women in the Military Forum.  This is the third year the forum has been held.   The guest speakers were women from the United States  Army, Navy, and Air Force.  Their career fields ranged from culinary to medicine to law and law enforcement to aircraft maintenance and Public Affairs.
The female cadets of VA-041 had an opportunity to ask the speakers a number of questions ranging from what it was like to be in the military day to day and what they liked the most and least about being deployed overseas.  The speakers also discussed the requirements for serving in the Armed Forces and the benefits.  Many of them shared their own personal stories and what motivated them to want to serve their country.  
The female cadets enjoyed the opportunity to hear the speakers and gained insight into what it is like not only to serve in the Armed Forces but to serve in the Armed Forces as a woman.

More than 60 Hampton City Schools high school students participate in Washington Wizards Sports Career Day

More than 60 students representing Hampton High School, Kecoughtan High School and Phoebus High School attended the Washington Wizards Sports Career Day held in early December.

“Several executives from the Wizards staff spoke to around 2,000 students about the role of the various departments, including marketing, sales and more,” said Stacey Ellis, marketing education teacher at Hampton High School. “The students heard firsthand about what it is like to work on the business side of professional sports and what it takes to succeed.”

Most students who attended are members of DECA, Future Business Leaders of American (FBLA), Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) and Business Professionals of America. The event also included a college fair with more than 50 colleges and universities represented. After career day, students were entertained by a professional basketball game between the Wizards and Milwaukee Bucks.

Hampton High School was recognized because they sent one of the 10 largest Wizards Sports day groups (37 students) to the event. Brianna Morgan represented HHS, standing on the court during halftime while the schools were recognized for their participation.
