By Danessa Rivers |

AVID, along with family specialist Francisco Martinez, hosted the school’s 2nd annual college career fair event in the cafeteria last Feb. 28.

“AVID put this event together so our community can have access to a college career event for possible careers and colleges,” AVID teacher Brock Stewart said.

The Marine Corps was one of more than 60 booths at the college and career fair.

The the fair gave people the opportunity to participate and get exposed to possible college and career choices. These were about 60 booths for more than 300 visitors to look at. There was a variety of colleges and many career options that you could look into. Some of the career booths that were there were SAFD, SAPD, SAWS, plumbing and electrical companies, real estate offices, massage therapy clinics, and NEISD.

Whether seeking a job or a school, students could skip some wait time by getting to interact with the reps in person.

“ I like how you go to each booth and can ask any questions you have, because normally if you have questions you have to wait for the universities to get back to you,” sophomore Tierra Durst said.
