400+ Students Experience Career Fair

The Martin County Career and Technical Education Program hosted a career fair on Friday.

It was held at E. J. Hayes School in Williamston.

Presenters brought trucks, vehicles and equipment to talk to third through fifth-graders about careeres.

The focus of the program is to provide all students with a strong foundation of academic and technical skills that will prepare them for successful careers and lifelong learning.

More than 400 students were expected to attend. WITN's Clayton Bauman was on hand to talk with the students and show them the equipment he uses to report the news.

      What a terrific idea! Thank you Mr. Elliott for coordinating this event - my boys loved it and are still talking about things they say and learned. Great Job!

    One of the ways to motivate students to exceed is to have job fairs like this. It costs little to do but a lot of effort is spent. Catch a falling star before it crashes and eliminate problem children. It works on adults as well. This brings hope and some prosperity sometimes. Hope it goes statewide. Did not see it, but these job fairs give hope,not punishment.

    Is there any way you can post the video for those of us that didn't know about the fair? Some of our kids are saying they were interviewed and we would like to see it. Thanks!
