The Mound Bayou Public Schools Alumni Association, Inc. is hosting the 2013 Career Fair on Feb. 8 at John F. Kennedy High School.

Dr. Elaine Baker, president of the MBPSAA, is extending the invitation to past and first-time participants as she acknowledges the importance of the seasoned workforce connecting with high school students.

Baker said high school is the building block for the students' future as global citizens as they go on to specialized programs, colleges and universities.

Others will decide to enter the career workforce immediately after high school graduation.

The intent of the fair is for exhibitors to help guide students in a positive direction.

According to Baker, “academic, business and non-profit representations can have a positive impact on the students who are potential future employees.

“We invite alumni, college/university recruiters, city, county, state and national business, industry, government and non-profit entities to take the opportunity to inform JFK students about career options and the admission and/or workforce requirements.”

Students in grades 9-12 will be participating and parents are encouraged to attend.

Ultimately, the career fair is designed to provide students and their teachers with information about diverse career and college opportunities and workforce expectations for employees.
