The Evansville Vanderburgh school Corporation's optIN Program, educates students on career options after High School. This program prepares students for all pathways leading to high-wage, and high-demand careers.

And Tuesday, over 30 students in the program signed their commitment to their future.

"I signed into the navy," says Senior, Gracie Linville. Linville says her family has a background in serving our country, so when it was time to make a decision on her career, it was easy.

"I used to live in Pensacola, we visited the aviation museum, and I've been inspired ever since," Linville says.

18 local companies, ranging from skilled trades, to health care were in attendance to support their new employees. Deaconess, who had 5 students sign appreciates the interest from such young adults.

"We get to develop them, work along side them, and help them develop in their careers. That's such a good feeling," Says, Katie Brunett, Deaconess Human Resource Manager.

Officials say, some students have already started working in their field, the rest will start as soon as they walk across the stage at graduation.

The bitterly cold start to our Wednesday will inevitably lead to a cooler-than-average afternoon across the Tri-State. We're currently expecting an afternoon high of 26° in Evansville on Wednesday afternoon (that’s 17° below average for this time of the year). Temperatures will once again dive back down towards the teens for many of us overnight and into early Thursday. As for right now Thursday morning looks as though will be slightly warmer, but only just - believes model data indicates that we will see a morning low temperature of 14° under partly cloudy skies in Evansville tomorrow morning.
