Through a collaborations in our community Waukee Aspiring Professional Experience (APEX) students are able to add value to business partners while exploring career possibilities identified by economic trends within our metro area and state. Waukee APEX draws on the expertise of business partners to bring real-world experience to high schoolers. Recently, APEX students, Sierra Burn and Olivia Compiano, in conjunction with Blank Children’s Hospital and Waukee Family YMCA, helped to plan and execute an upcoming event, Healthy Halloween on Saturday, October 27.
“APEX could not exist and thrive without the involvement of the professional community, which is why we like to give thanks to those partners that allow our students to work alongside them to plan a great event like Healthy Halloween for our community,” Michelle Hill, director of APEX, said.
The event will take place at the Waukee Family YMCA, 210 North Warrior Lane, from 6-8 p.m. Donations of non-perishable items will be collected at the door to be donated to the Waukee Area Christian Services Food Pantry.
