The 2014 Mary Ellen Henderson Middle School Career Fair packed the gym on Thursday! Over 85 volunteers from varying professions such as surgeons, real-estate agents, judges, reporters, and teachers, etc. showcased their careers to our 6th, 7th, and 8th grade classes, sharing stories and projects with the students.
Students were excited and were able to learn a lot from the volunteers, including how to properly administer surgical sutures (pictured). Students also participated in "Dress Up Day", sponsored by SCA.
Volunteers spanned the distinct groups of 16 career clusters as defined by the National Association of State Directors of Career Technical Education Constorium (NASDCTEc).
