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.

It was an absolutely gorgeous afternoon throughout the Tri-State, but despite our seemingly endless supply of sunshine today, temperatures remained more than 10° cooler than the norm for this time of the year. Fortunately, today's peak temperature of 65° represents our coolest anticipated afternoon high temperature through the remainder of our extended forecast. While it is indeed encouraging that temperatures will gradually rise through the rest of the work week into the weekend ahead, we'll still have to deal with temperatures back down into the upper 30s and low 40s early Thursday morning.
