VIP lets them
Education could have been defined as the act of imparting knowledge. Ed Kline, the director of VIP. made it his goal to educate the students.
Students were expected to work in the VIP store. Odd jobs were awarded to the lowest bidder. If one student offered to wash the windows for five dollars and another offered for three, the lower bidder got the job. In this way students learned the value of money.
VIP served its purpose to the high school; they demonstrated that learning did not have to be painful and there was always hope. Ql

Preparing for the future

This sort of conversation would not be expected from high school students, but this one was attributed to two organizations. HO and DECA.
Distributive Education (DECA) helped students learn more about retailed marketing in fields from clothing to frozen foods. Students who were apart of DECA attended school for three or four class periods and then, on to their job the rest of the day. This program was a continued two year
course for juniors and seniors.
Health Occupations (HO) was geared toward the students interested in health care in all fields. Students entered the class their junior year and received the basic skills and information from their advisor Mrs. McLaughlin, a registered nurse. After they completed the course in full, they became certified nursing assistants through the junior Basic Nursing Assistants (BNA) Program and worked with certified nursing teams. Like DECA these students attended school half the day and worked the other which they received wages over minimum wage. Both DECA and HO handed experiences to the students, as well as the idea of on the job training.
