Students prepare for College & Career Week | Schools
Over 3000 juniors and seniors from Huntsville City Schools will be attending the College and Career Expo this week to explore their future. The students will not only be able to meet representatives from 100 different colleges and universities in a “one stop shopping” atmosphere, but also talk with local businesses to learn more about different careers available in North Alabama, and to find out details on the educational requirements to get a job and succeed. The Expo is Thursday, September 5th, from 8:30 am – 1:30 pm at the UAHuntsville Fitness Center, located at the corner of John Wright Drive and Holmes Avenue.
The Expo is a part of College and Career Connection Week, which includes a variety of long-term education and career plans. Teachers and staff share their college and career stories with their classes, and students participate in activities to investigate college majors they are interested in, career clusters for those choices, and research businesses that might employ a graduate in that field.
The week is sponsored in part by the Huntsville Council of PTAs, the Huntsville / Madison County Chamber of Commerce, the Schools Foundation, our local colleges, and Huntsville City Schools.
