Career Day makes huge impact at AHS

“Wow” is the word that comes to mind to describe our first Career Day at Alpena High School on Thursday, as AHS was taken over by 45 area professionals who shared their knowledge, experience and time with our students. Each presenter engaged students as they talked about training, coursework, job skills, interviewing, and their own job satisfaction in many diversified fields. Halls were noticeably empty during the lessons and students moved quickly and enthusiastically from session to session to listen to their next presenter. Speakers touched on so many job skills topics that we educators teach students, but the message has so much more impact coming from their future employers.

My only regret is that there was not enough time to listen to each and every speaker.

THANK YOU to our area presenters and the businesses they represented.
