1. 2nd Annual Skilled Trades Career Fair (Almond Campus)

Work Boot

The goal of the fair is to educate our upperclassmen and foster curiosity on the benefits of Career Technical Education and the variety of opportunities and lucrative careers available in the skilled trades.

Why it’s important: This is an excellent opportunity for our students to connect to key individuals and learn about internships, apprenticeships, job shadowing and local employment in our area!

When is it? The event will be in the Gym during periods 3 - 6 on Friday, November 17th. Students are highly encouraged to attend this beneficial event during their lunch period or study hall.
