High School holds career exploration day for students
Our community partnerships provide a wealth of knowledge to our students. On May 30, High School students had a chance to hear from local professionals about a variety of careers at the school’s Career Day.
The event started with school-wide assembly featuring Danielle Britton from the Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce who spoke about the current job opportunities available in our own community, along with past graduates who shared their own experiences of transitioning from high school to college.
Then students participated in three discussion sessions based on a career interest. Over 85 presenters met with students to discuss their path from high school to career, their college, or trade preparation education, their job duties and expectations. They also offered advice to students interested in a similar career. Several past graduates were among the presenters!
Career paths represented included information technology, education, law and public safety, business, the arts and communication, and health sciences.
In addition, there were career displays in the cafeteria for students to visit throughout the day.
The annual event is a part of the district’s Spartan Career Connection initiative, designed to inform, inspire, and prepare students for future careers.
Thank you to the many community members who volunteered their time, and shared their knowledge, in support of our Spartans!
