GCHS To Host Freshman Career Fair

USD 457

Garden City High School will host a career fair on Friday, December 6th, from 8:55 – 10:35 a.m. in the Commons Area at the school, 2720 Buffalo Way Blvd. The fair will help freshman students at the school explore their career interests by talking to employees from various companies about their day-to-day career responsibilities.  The career fair is being presented by the Finney County Workforce Connection and will assist freshman students in choosing one of 15 career pathways available at the high school.

During their first year of high school, Garden City High School ninth graders take introductory courses in areas that interest them, while putting them on the track to fulfill the Kansas requirements for high school graduation.  For their sophomore year, students enroll in a career-focused academy and choose courses from the 15 Career and Technical Education career pathways that are offered at GCHS.

Area employers are invited to participate in the free event and have an opportunity to speak with students about their chosen career; what a typical day consists of, what you enjoy about your job and what students could be doing in high school to prepare for a rewarding career in your field.  Representatives from every career field are welcome and encouraged to attend this event.

The Finney County Workforce Connection is a group of community partners working together to ensure sustainability of a quality workforce in Southwest Kansas.  The purpose of the Finney County Workforce Connection is to create an aggressive community-wide campaign to recruit, enhance, and retain a sustainable workforce in the Finney County region.
