Students at Brunswick County Early College High School will have first hand exposure to 30 different career pathways this Friday, February 1, 2013. Over forty different individuals representing their specific business or industry will speak with students in small group sessions at Career Day. All 330 BCECHS students selected four different career sessions to attend. The event will occur on the school's campus at Brunswick Community College from 8:00 a.m. until noon.
Principal Dr. Vicky Snyder is excited about this opportunity for the school. "Career Day is an opportunity for us to bring the community into our school. Students will learn important information on specific careers, but we also know they will hear about the critical role of education and the need for all professionals to work collaboratively in the 21st Century world of work,” said Dr. Snyder.
Career Day participants represent a broad range of Brunswick County professionals including bankers, engineers, dentists, veterinarians, law enforcement officers, emergency management personnel, nurses, computer network specialists, social workers, and small business owners.
Career Day presenters include Brunswick County Board of Education member and local architect John Thompson and recent BCECHS graduate Genae Randall who is a WECT New Channel 6 intern and in her final year as a Communication Studies major at UNCW. In addition to the businesses below, Career Day is supported by retired members of the FBI and Homeland Security and former Peace Corp volunteers.
