Career/College Day

On Friday, Oct. 18, the school districts of Attala County and Kosciusko will sponsor a Career/College Day for juniors and seniors at the Oprah Winfrey Boys and Girls Club. They are extending an invitation to area businesses to attend this event and introduce the juniors and seniors to job possibilities and educational opportunities in our state. Along with industry, colleges and the military will be represented. They want students to be given a view of the many options readily available to them. The Career/College Day allows students to ask questions and gain needed information one-on-one. It will give businesses a means of promoting their industries and professions. Tables will be provided for any business that would like to set up. There is no charge for this service: however, they are asking for door prize donations to give to students. If your business or college can assist by participating and/or giving door prizes, please bring these items with you to the Career/College Day.
