Attention Community Members:
ROYALS needs 15 Minutes of Your Time!

ROYALS needs your help in assisting students in finding a career path. Career awareness is a vital piece to finding post-secondary success.

Could you spend 15 minutes with us describing your career path? We want to hear about the perfect transitions from school to career, but we need to hear about the indirect paths that are so often taken! We are asking you, and others you know, to come visit with us at our ROYALS Macomb, ROYALS Canton or ROYALS Carthage sites. Please contact Principal Lori Bilbrey at (309) 575-3241 or [email protected] to schedule your opportunity to give “15 for our Future.”
