February is National Magnet Month, so we are featuring original work from CMA scholars answering the question “Why Magnet?” Today’s submission is from Gaelen Reid who is in the Cyber-Security pathway:
Career Magnet is one of those places where you can meet people from different parts of Knox County, but I came here to experience and change minds and souls forever by doing everything my friends back home said was impossible and by putting this school on the map by getting that two-year degree. But the main thing is this school has good people and you feel like a college student and you are treated like one. When I started at this school I made friends like that, and now those friends either call me Fluffy or Mato. But this school brings something no other school in America brings, love and passion for one another and caring for friends, even if it’s a bad day we still care about each other. So that is why I chose Career Magnet Academy because there is life and love at this school. We will never let that die out because inside us there is always going to be a Grey Wolf.
