Waynesville-St. Robert Chamber of Commerce

Choices Presentation

The Waynesville-St. Robert Chamber of Commerce and Rotary Club of Pulaski County are pleased to have brought the CHOICES Program to the eighth grade students of Pulaski County. The CHOICES Program is a highly participatory classroom seminar, presented by local volunteers from both the Chamber of Commerce and Rotary Club. It uses interactive exercises to help students learn the impact of their choices and how to take control of their lives through wise decision-making when it comes to time and money management as well as education.

The success of this project can be summed up best in the words of a student after completing the CHOICES presentation, "It (self-discipline) means pushing myself to do the right thing even if it's hard." By focusing on real world topics such as time management, job opportunities, self-discipline, and staying in school CHOICES drives home the lessons that are so often overlooked.

The Chamber and Rotary Club presented CHOICES to every school district in Pulaski County during the 2017-2018 school year.
