The eighth annual Sturgis Brown High School Career Fair was held last week with 134 people representing 102 career fields in attendance to answer questions and to share their expertise and information about their professions with the students.
Approximately 760 freshmen through seniors, which included 60 students from Lead High School and 52 from Douglas High School in addition to those from SBHS, had an opportunity to connect with many different professions while exploring career opportunities with representatives of the following career clusters: agriculture, food and natural resources; architecture and construction; arts, audio-video technology and communications; business, management and administration; education and training; finance; government and public administration; health science; hospitality and tourism; human services; information and technology; law, public safety, corrections and security; manufacturing; marketing, sales and service; science, technology, engineering and mathematics; and transportation, distribution and logistics.
“All students are career bound and hopefully this fair helps them make informed choices,” said Coleen Keffeler, career and technical education coordinator at SBHS. “This fair should also help the students make better course selections as they begin registering for next year’s classes,” she said.
