The Lauderdale County School District hosted a college and career fair exposing high school seniors to many potential careers.
“It’s important for students to be able to talk to different colleges and Universities. They’re trying to narrow their decision down to where they will be attending school in the fall, and this will give them a chance to talk to multiple schools at once and let them finalize that decision,” said Susan White, Clarkdale High School Counselor.
High School seniors already have an idea of what their future career paths will be.
“I want to be a pediatric doctor” said Morgan Dubose, Northeast High School Senior.
“I always wanted to go into the medical field in general, but radiology is more my speed,” said Kyleigh Turner. Northeast High School senior.
This fair provided clarity about the proper schooling and information to students.
“I wasn’t quite sure what program I needed to go into in order to attend MCC to be an ultra sound tech but I need to go into radiology in order to be an Ultra Sound tech when I get older,” said Turner.
Both High School seniors say they are encouraged and now know what it will take to land a job in their future careers.
“I like seeing smiles that are brought on mother's faces whenever they have the sonogram and I just feel like that program is really going to fit me” Turner said.
“Most of my family is in the medical field so I feel like it just kind of fits me. I love dealing with kids. I love caring for people. I have just been drawn to it for a long time” Dubose said.
