Eagles Soar into AHEC Program

Eagles Soar into AHEC Program

We are pleased to announce after two rigorous rounds of evaluations, three SMA students were selected to participate in AHEC of a Summer. Junior Jessica Hamm, sophomore Camila Frech and freshman Ali Langlois completed the selection process and recently received notification of this extraordinary honor.  

AHEC of a Summer (AHOS) provides an opportunity for high school students to experience career opportunities in health care by taking part in volunteer work at health care facilities in their community and shadowing health care professionals.

Participants go behind the scenes in hospitals and other clinical facilities to learn about current health issues, patient care, career opportunities, volunteer service, post-secondary education requirements for various health professions and more. Participants must commit to a three to four week time span during the summer and can earn 1/2 credit toward their Louisiana high school diploma if they successfully complete the program. Since 1992, more than 4,000 high school students have taken part in AHEC of a Summer.

The administration and staff of STEM Magnet Academy are proud of these three young ladies and we wish them the best of luck in this unique educational opportunity.
