Aisha Williams, a sophomore enrolled at Vicksburg High School, was set to become her district’s youngest engineering program completer this spring thanks to a scheduling change for the academic year.
This year, the Vicksburg Warren School District implemented a five-by-five schedule for all high school students in which students attended five classes in the fall semester and five different classes in the spring. This schedule allowed students to complete some programs within a year’s time.
Williams and other students learned how to use AutoCAD design software and other programming applications, among many other lessons and tasks.
“I wanted to take this class to see if engineering was the career path I wanted to pursue,” she said.
