Banner Center Newsletter

This week CHS Global Logistics has a very busy schedule!  We are picking up SUMS kits from our district's elementary schools, and have a very exciting "Kick off " fundraising meeting on Wednesday.  We are hoping/needing to raise $100,000 for the next school year to begin to build our new building on campus and are looking for help!

We are also very excited to announce that CHS was featured in the Summer 2011 Banner Center Newletter, please check out page 3.

Florida Gateway College - Simulator

May 10th and 11th our students had the opportunity to drive a tractor trailer.  The students have a new found respect for semi drivers on the road.  We also learned that the college offers an 8 week CDL A course that uses the simulator and most drivers start out making $40 - $50,000 a year.

We would like to give a BIG Thank You to Mr. Shep, Miss Robin and Miss Stephanie for bringing the simulator to CHS!

Staging First Book Shipment

This week we have continued to work on the First Book Shipment.  One shipment has started to leave our warehouse via UPS and is going all across the country.  The second shipment is 313 boxes, each box containing 63 books, going to the SE Texas Food Bank via Less Than Load.

The young adults are doing a fantastic job with this project and we are getting super excited about getting new books in for next year!
