It’s the time of year when high school seniors are preparing their college applications and reviewing their options and high school juniors are looking at their future prospects. In order to assist in the process of guiding the students toward the enroll, employ, or enlist pathways, Mt. Healthy Jr/Sr High School hosted a College and Career Fair. The event, held during the day, provided students with a variety of opportunities in multiple areas of interest and options. Among the different resources, 22 colleges/universities attended. In addition, Great Oaks Career Campuses, Job Corps, At Work Cincy, and Ohio Laborer’s Apprenticeship Local 265 provided opportunities into career-training centers. There were seven local businesses looking for immediate employees upon graduation, and three areas of the Armed Forces were available to provide students the chance to pre-enlist or open the door for more information.
High school seniors and juniors attended a forum where speakers described their career paths. Four of the speakers, Kenny Glenn, Brooke Shirley, Tina Hubbard, and Kenitra Battle, were relatable to our current students because they are Mt. Healthy High School graduates. The final speaker, Dr. Gaitlin, a Chemist for Procter & Gamble shared her journey to her current position while earning a PhD. Students had the ability to ask questions at the end of the forums.
