Members of the Nacogdoches Chamber of Commerce have great expectations for the city's eighth grade students.
Each year the chamber encourages students to take challenging courses that prepare them for the future. "Great Expectations" is part of the chamber's noble education program. Business professionals visit classrooms and emphasize why a good education will help students beyond their school days. Eighth graders will be deciding soon what high school classes to take. Hopefully what they heard today will influence their decision.
