Aujia Hines had little interest last year in going to college and only vague ideas about her future career, and she disliked talking in front of other students.
Through the pilot program from the Northern Kentucky-based company NaviGo, Hines also learned how to coach other students in reaching their career and college goals.
Fayette County is the first school district in Kentucky to test the program, which works somewhat differently at each of the five high schools where it is being piloted: Southside, Bryan Station, the STEAM Academy, Carter G. Woodson Academy, and the School for the Creative and Performing Arts.
