POTEAU–On Wednesday, Kiamichi Technology Centers – Poteau Campus will partner with the Poteau Chamber of Commerce to offer a career awareness day to all local eighth grade students.
The event, known as the KTC Career Fest, will be held on KTC’s Poteau Campus. Eighth grade students from all of KTC’s sending schools will have the opportunity to be exposed to an assortment of career fields.
KTC’s Student Services Coordinator, Laura Harrison, commented, “The goal of the KTC Career Fest is to provide opportunities for our local 8th graders to explore a wide variety of career options. We hope this exposure helps spark a career goal for these students so they can start making a plan for their future.”
Last year KTC and the Poteau Chamber of Commerce held two separate events to promote career awareness for the local eighth grade students.
This year these two events are being consolidated to better serve the students. Many members of the Chamber of Commerce are participating by providing donations and door prizes as well as informational booths/displays for their respective careers.
