POTEAU–On Tuesday, the 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. This year’s theme is Minecraft and the slogan is, “You Are the Player. Craft Your Future!”
Eighth grade students from all of KTC’s partner 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 eighth 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.”
