Volunteers sought to participate in program

Lewiston-Porter High School has put out the call for participants to be a part of its first career expo for students. The event will be held from 1:15-2:40 p.m. Wednesday, March 22, on the school’s Creek Road campus.

Nicole Alonzo, business teacher at Lewiston-Porter High School, said an important objective for the business education department is to provide students with real-world exposure to college and career opportunities available following graduation. The high school offers career and financial management, which Alonzo calls “a valuable first step in introducing students to the world of work.

“Through this event, students from ninth through 12th grade will have an opportunity to speak one-on-one with individuals in a variety of occupations and career pathways in the hopes of sparking an interest or answering questions regarding a budding career choice.”

Lewiston-Porter is looking for volunteers to participate in the following areas:

√ Individuals from any career background, currently working or retired, who are interested in talking to students about their work experiences;

√ Trade workers or organizations to discuss the benefits of skills-based training and occupations;

√ Military personnel who can talk with students about the process of joining the U.S. armed services; and

√ College representatives who would like to present their institutions’ academic offerings to students.

Participants will man stations in the high school gymnasium with other professionals in a similar career area. Students will move from station to station to ask questions, listen to career stories, and learn from current and former professionals in the field.

Interested individuals who would like to participate should visit the career expo page on the Lewiston-Porter website (https://www.lew-port.com/page/13217). Click on the “Register Now” button to sign up. Registrants will receive additional information via email closer to the event.
