Students in the Windham Northeast Supervisory Union had the opportunity to talk to area employers and explore career options in the 2nd Annual WNESU Career Expo at the Bellows Falls Union High School. The purpose of the Career Expo was to provide students in grades 4-12 a first hand interaction with people from a number of careers. The goal is to excite students about their future and give them the opportunity to see what types of careers are out there now, while they are still in school. There were presenters who explained the many educational choices ahead of them.
