Two Rivers Career Fair 2019

0

The Two Rivers Career Fair 2019 was held March 7, 2019 at Illinois College.  Two Rivers has sponsored the fair annually for the past 10 years.  This year our region hosted fifty-two vendors from all over West Central Illinois.  These vendors showcased careers that pertained to all sixteen career clusters.  Hands on activities, contact materials, and career information was provided to over 500 students from 10 area schools.  Each student had a card that eight vendors had to initial that he or she visited with them in order to enter into the drawing.  The JHS Programs of Study provided $300 in Jacksonville Chamber Checks that were awarded in increments of $10 each to 30 students in a Raffle drawing.  Director Reggie Clinton, Assistant Sarah Graham, Coordinator Sherri McLaughlin, and JHS staff have worked together to provide students with the opportunity to explore career options and learn about job duties while networking with professionals in the field.  The Two Rivers Career Fair was a memorable educational experience.
