We have an EMT, Lawyer, Personal Trainer, Nutritionists, Community Development Specialist, Electrician, Veterinarian, Army National Guard, Human Services, Chemist, and Career Counseling coming in tomorrow for an exciting day of learning and exploring! There will be another station for students to view videos and explore on their own the vast variety of career opportunities that exist among us and to see what interests them! Students will be able to rotate among these stations and learn fascinating insights to help give them an idea for their future and what career they might be interested in pursing. The Career Fair will be from 1:00pm-2:30pm. It is sure to be another fun Experience Friday for our students and we thank all of our guests from all different professions for coming and sharing their knowledge and talents with us!
