Posted: Friday, November 13, 2015

The seventh annual Life Long Learning Career Day was held on Thursday, November 12 at Huntington North High School. The information presented at the fair enables freshmen and other invited students from the high school to make career choices while in high school and take the appropriate classes.

Ten different careers were featured in individual booths called “career pods” with those experienced in the particular field available to talk with the 400 plus students visiting the fair. The fields presented in the pods included agriculture, arts, technology and communication, architecture and construction, education and training, health services, financial services, manufacturing and science engineering, marketing and sales, public safety and security, hospitality and human services and transportation. Each student participating also explored the “soft skills” such as team work, dependability, reliability, motivation, customer focus, commitment, flexibility, communication and responsibility.

Special guest for the 2015 Career Day was Teresa Lubbers, the Commissioner of the Indiana Commission for Higher Education. She spoke about upcoming changes in education where more emphasis will be placed on career technical education and earning certifications. Lubbers talked with over 50 adults involved with the Career Day including POD commanders and presenters.
