In late October, 300 business volunteers spent the day at the Nashville Convention Center interacting with nearly 5,000 Metro Schools ninth-graders. Sponsored by Shoney’s Restaurants, the purpose of the event was to get these teens thinking about their future: what type of academy they might choose for the rest of their high school career, what kind of postsecondary institutions they should explore, and what types of careers they might eventually enjoy.
