Months away from their high school graduation, Bowling Green High School seniors enrolled in the school’s English IV course are gaining real-world experience that organizers hope will better prepare them for life after Bowling Green High School.
Earlier this year, high school English teacher Emily Woodall had students draft resumes and cover letters as part of the department’s curriculum known as Business English.
“The students were able to cater their resumes and cover letters to their specific situation,” Woodall said on Monday.
For Alexis Smith, it was a resume and cover letter for an entry-level social worker position and why she feels called to be an advocate for children coming from abuse or neglect.

Bowling Green High School senior Lance Johnson answers a question during a mock interview on Monday morning. Johnson, who plans to attend a trade school and hopes to one day work as a crane operator, was one of several students participating in the mock interview program. The program, which is now in its second year, is organized through the English IV course.
