About the SGHS Business Alliance

  • The mission of the South Garner High School Business Alliance is to link the resources from community stakeholders to enhance the School-to-Career transition of every student, as they become responsible, productive citizens and leaders within the community.

    The Business Alliance will be comprised of business representatives, students, parents, and community volunteers. We will collaborate to provide the resources to support the South Garner High School student community as they become critical thinkers and reflective learners. Our goal is to assist students in developing an attitude of caring and compassion, a demand for inquiry and understanding, and a desire to contribute in a constructive way to the building of stronger communities, both locally and globally. 

    The South Garner High School Business Alliance is looking for businesses, parents and community members to represent all career pathways for our future workforce. Please contact Mr. Walker by using the form below to learn how you and your organization can get involved. Our teachers and future workforce need YOU!   

  • COLLABORATION
