The UACCH Career Pathways Initiative held its first Student Appreciation Luncheon Wednesday, March 02, 2011. Students ate pizza and received door prizes provided by both Career Pathways and the UACCH Bookstore. They learned about new policies and upcoming events and completed applications for graduation.
