Theme: Career/Future

As current seniors in high school, we have become aware that many students go into college with an undecided major. The problem with having to choose a major, and ultimately your career, at such a young age is that many students have not yet had the exposure to the wide range of career fields the world has to offer. Our goal with this event is to introduce students to numerous potential career options and hopefully aid in their decision toward a major as they enter the next chapter of their life. The speaker panel will consist of professionals in a wide variety of career fields in an effort to accomplish this goal.
