What is your plan after high school? If you are not sure yet, come out and visit the Lebanon College and Career Fair! It takes place in the Herman B. Wells Community Center from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. Parents and students grades 6-12 can attend. The College and Career Fair has been a part of LHS for the last five years by Kirsten Scott.
“The College and Career Fair is a great opportunity for students to learn more about their options after high school. Students are encouraged to dress nicely and be prepared to ask questions. This is your first opportunity to make an impression–make it a positive one,” said Scott.
It is mandatory for AVID students to attend the College and Career Fair every year. They have to take notes and ask plenty of questions for this event. Part of their assignment is to talk to four colleges and two work force companies. Later in the year, they will have to do a presentation on everything they have learned about this event.
“Mrs. Love requires AVID students to go to the College and Career Fair, like myself, and one college that I really enjoyed was Marian University. I think it is a very important thing to attend all 4 years of high school,” said sophomore Drew Davidson.
Senior Jakob Harsin has been attending this event since his freshman year, because it gives him more information of colleges he would like to attend. He loves all the colleges in attendance and people he meets at the Career Fair.
“I enjoy seeing Purdue because it gives me the opportunity to get in contact with the admissions counselor. Repetitively giving admissions counselors your name gives them more of a reason to remember and it increases your chances of being admitted in the years to come,” said Harsin.
A lot of students think that it is only for college but many students go to learn more about the branches of military. This can get you a better look at what it’s all about and all the training required.
“Last year at the college career fair I met with the Air Force, Army, Marine Core, and the National Guard. I really learned a lot about each one and its branches, especially the Marine Core, who I have an interest in joining. I also learned about all the training they had to go to and what exactly the do. They were just very kind,” said Junior Matt Phelps.
