When Foday Jarra received a flyer about Personalized Pathways during a schoolwide presentation for Sherman eighth graders, he wasn’t particularly enthusiastic or thrilled. But he figured he would share the details with his family and get their advice about the opportunity to learn through a lens of Health Services at East High School.
“It was my father who really encouraged me to enroll in Pathways,” Foday recalled. With his father’s guidance, and family’s support, Foday set out on a pathway to explore, analyze and study hot topics in health sciences - a path he has developed a genuine passion for, and a choice he’s glad his father helped him make. He also knew that Pathways would provide ways to connect with opportunities after high school and prepare him to be successful in any profession.
