CAREER FAIR HELD AT AMITY MIDDLE SCHOOL IN ORANGE

Amity Middle School Career Fair!

How many times have parents asked and children pondered the following question:  “What do I want to be when I grow up?”  Amity Middle School in Orange brought this question front and center when a Career Fair was held in the school gymnasium on March 30th.  Over thirty professions were represented with half the presenters being parents, former parents, and former students.  The goal of this event was to give all students not only an opportunity to become aware of a possible career, but also to speak to someone already in that field.  Some of the vocations represented were:  dog trainer, art therapist, dentist, attorney, realtor, weatherman, and actor. 

The Career Fair occurs every other year and has been held for over a decade at Amity Middle School in Orange.  Based on the enthusiasm of the students, the fair will be a mainstay event.
