McCollum HS hosts College and Career Fair

Kingsborough MS and Terrell Wells MS eighth grade students visited McCollum HS to get a glimpse into the different Career and Technology Education (CTE) classes offered at their future school.

The students toured the campus during the day and attended the College and Career Fair in the evening.

A record-breaking total of 72 different programs and organizations were set up through the cafeteria and the courtyard to recruit new members. McCollum Auto Tech, Cowboy Productions, Culinary Arts, the Print Shop and many others were on hand to provide information. The programs didn’t hold back when it came to finding creative ways to attract the middle school students to their stations. Culinary Arts was making delicious crepes and Auto Tech had a demonstration of beautiful classic cars.

Harlandale High School’s cosmetology program, Film School of San Antonio, Health Professional High School and other CTE courses offered at Harlandale were also present.

Local universities, businesses and law enforcement officials were also present to share information about their services. A Police Crime Scene Unit was even parked outside the cafeteria for students to tour.

“The event is really for the kids to have a better understanding of the different possibilities that are out there for them career wise,” MHS CTE Counselor Jaime Zimmerle added.

The students left inspired and ready to take the next step toward their future.
