Juniors and seniors at West Harrison High School had the chance to interact with colleges and local employers today.
Over 30 businesses, colleges, and agencies were set up in the school’s gym for a college and career fair. Employers such as NASA and Coast Electric were on hand, along with the University of Alabama, Ole Miss, and Mississippi State among others.
Students asked questions about the different organizations and even participated in interactive demonstrations at some stations. West Harrison Student Body President Mason Halsey said, “They really do open up to it. They make sure they go to all the booths and get information. They get their pamphlets, they get information about schools they’re interested in and schools that they might not have been interested in had it not been for this event.”
