Dr. Lara Vanderhoof, Chief Academic Officer, commented on the event,

“The Career Fair was not simply a class project, but a way to help students gain practical experience meeting with businesses and organizations as they secured internships and potential employment.  The students in the Career Exploration  organized this event learning project management skills, collaboration, team work, and communication skills. “

Sarah Castleman of USD-259 had this to say,

“It was wonderful getting to connect with various CCCK students regarding the many opportunities Wichita Public Schools has to offer, both in and out of the classroom!”

Thank you to all the businesses who attended the Career Fair for giving your time to talk to our students and help develop their futures.
