2015 MEH Career Fair Registration  |  Volunteer Information Form

Mary Ellen Henderson Middle School is in need of Career Fair volunteers!  (If you registered for the Career Fair prior to the winter storm that canceled the event, PLEASE RE-REGISTER!)

All MEHMS students will participate in the 2015 MEHMS Career Fair on April 30. Students will travel around our gymnasium to speak with volunteers who will be organized in 16 National Career Clusters.  If bad weather occurs causing a delay in school or cancellation, we will reschedule the Career Fair for the following day.

Volunteers will need to fill out the Volunteer Information Form, in addition to the Career Fair registration.  Volunteers do not need to be parents of any FCCPS students.  There are many participants that are part of the Business in Education (BIE) Partnership, as well as friends, parents, spouses, etc.

We want to show our students there are many ways to use their talents and interests in the future. Please consider volunteering for Career Fair and share your profession with our Huskies!
