Employers share information at Career Fair at Adair Co. HS

Juniors and seniors meet with potential employers in fourth annual event

Adair County High School's upperclassmen met with community employers and business leaders Friday morning at the fourth annual ACHS Career Fair. Almost 40 booths were set up in the school's gymnasium to share information about their businesses and take questions from the students.


"We're very excited to host this fair," ACHS guidance counselor Ann Young says. "We've had a good turnout and all the kids have been very receptive. The people working the booths said our kids are asking good questions."

Principal Troy Young says the intelligent questions from students are a result of the school's emphasis on career education and applicable, real-world skills. "The vocabulary has gotten a lot better across the board these past couple of years," Young explains. "Everyone is on the same page as far as terminology and that's reflected in how the students interact with the employers we have here today."

In addition to Q-and-A, students met with leaders in a wide range of fields and were able to assess their interest in many different career paths. The goal was for students to gain an impression about the various jobs available in the community and for employers to meet with the next generation of workers.

"The students are always very appreciative that the community gives their time to come out and meet with them for this," says ACHS college and career readiness counselor Robin Loy. "It's a great opportunity for these juniors and seniors and I'm glad they're taking advantage of it."
