Everyone today has an attachment to their social media persona. Social media and social websites help us stay connected with friends and family. It allows us to make new connections and keeps us up-to-date with the changes in our society. Sometimes however, social media can work against us if not used properly. Previous member of Governor Bruce Rauner political team, Ben Tracy visited Pioneer Academy this month to share his professional experience. Mr. Tracy shared with our students his own personal story of how his social media behavior in High School affected his professional career later in life. He also gave our students insight on the many ways that social media can be used positively and actually serve as a support mechanism for the future.
