Jr. High Students Learn New Things at Career Expo
By Devin Denker
On April 17, 2013, 30 businesses from around the Norfolk area came to the Norfolk Jr. High. They talked about what their businesses do.
This was the first ever career expo held at the Jr. High. Students got to visit 8 different businesses, at 12 minutes each session, the expo lasted from 12:00-2:00 P.M. Some businesses handed out small goods like pens and pencils, while others handed out larger items like t-shirts and pizza Cutters.
My favorite business was Nucor. They talked about the process their product goes through. I think it was the most interesting business present.
As you can see, the Career Expo was a great time. It was a good opportunity to check out the local businesses. This Career Expo was made possible by the Norfolk Area Chamber of Commerce, and the staff at the Norfolk Jr. High.
