The Opportunity for Work-based Learning, or The O.W.L. Program, began at Crossett High School in December.

OWL is a government produced program and is designed to give high school students the opportunity to experience employability skills by participating in a real work environment and explore future careers.

Three students at Crossett High participate in the program. Anna Rice works at the Oak Tree Animal Hospital two to three days a week. Josh Teutsch works at the Crossett Fire Department after school from 3:15 to 5 p.m. Josten Smith works by code enforcement officer Tony Jones.

The students are able to accumulate up to 16 hours a month.
