Pathways to Success Career Fair
On Wednesday, October 25, St. Louis High School held its first college and career fair, “Pathways to Success.” This event, sponsored by Commercial Bank, was planned by business teachers, Andrea Biehl and Ben Goward, with the help of the high school staff and the St. Louis High School Business Vocational Advisory Committee. The overall goal of the career fair was to expose students to a number of careers and colleges and start to think through where they see themselves upon graduation. There were four, 45-minute rotations, each just as valuable for the students. One station provided an opportunity for students to use careercrusing.com to research college and career options. Another station brought back a panel of SLHS alumni who discussed their decisions about life after high school. Another station included representatives from over 10 colleges from around the state in addition to the armed services. The career portion for students included over 50 booths from a wide-variety of local businesses and industries. Many students were amazed at the different jobs that were available to them locally. This was a great way for our students to interact with local employers and learn more about many different career options. For many of our students, making career decisions can be very difficult process, and we believe this is a great way for them to explore their opportunities. We were very proud of all of the positive feedback we received from businesses about our student body, and we appreciate these individuals investing their time and expertise for our students. The college and career fair was an amazing experience for students and local businesses.
