2013 My Future. My Way. Career Exploration Fair

When it comes to experiential learning, the Freshman Class of 2013-2014 took part in a day they will never forget!

On October 30, nearly 6,000 students from 20 different MNPS High Schools packed into the Music City Center for the 4th Annual Career Exploration Fair. More than 130 businesses from throughout Middle Tennessee spent the day answering students questions about their careers, educational requirements, work styles, and technical skills needed to work in a specific industry. Students will take this information back to the classroom to make plans for their future education and career paths, as well as their Academy selection for their sophomore through senior year.

What might this look like you ask? Well, a picture is worth 1,000 words! Check out the fantastic photos below from the event. Thank you to all of the business partners and volunteers that made this event possible and a special thanks to Shoney’s for sponsoring the My Future. My Way. Career Exploration Fair again this year.

Every industry competes to be the "Best in Show." Congratulations to the Health and Public Services Partnership Council for being this year's winner!
