Jonathan Ton, Montgomery Principal. “Today’s complex professions require
us to begin training students on basic fundamentals right here in
middle school. At Montgomery, we have several classes that start
students on a career path.”
Other professionals on hand included
architects, engineers, athletic trainers, court reporters, language
translators and paramedics. The district’s Office of College, Career and
Technical Education organized the event, as it does for several other
middle schools around the district.
