Holmes hosts career fair with a unique twist


Students at Holmes High School got to take a unique look into different career paths on Wednesday.

Rather than visiting booths at the career fair, students visited vehicles and talked with industry professionals. A dump truck, ambulance, Hummer and a 1967 GTO drag race car were among the vehicles used in the career fair.

"It's a different approach to encourage students to think about how varied careers can be, even within a broad profession," said Renee Murray, instructional coach at Holmes. "By using vehicles as a center, students can gain a different prospective of opportunities they may not have considered. Combining the vehicles with industry professionals and postsecondary instructors will give students a better idea of what the career really is."

The vehicles represent eight different career cluster offered at Holmes, including transportation, construction and manufacturing, information technology, health science, business and marketing, education, creative and performing arts and public service.
