Fayette 8th Grade Annual Career Fair a Success

LPGA teaching pro Oneda Castillo talks to J.C. Booth Middle students about a career as a professional golfer.

Over 1,800 eighth graders from the county’s five public middle schools had an opportunity to explore future job opportunities during the sixth annual Fayette County Schools Eighth Grade Career Fair.

Students from each school spent an hour at the fair interviewing and talking to professionals from a variety of backgrounds. Careers represented ran the gamut from food service and professional golfing to nursing, aviation and military.

The fair was held at Heritage Christian Church February 4-5 in conjunction with National School Counseling Week. All eighth grade counselors in the school system helped coordinate the event. By organizing one large fair for all eighth graders, the counselors were able to expose students to a wider variety of careers than would be possible with individual school fairs.
