It is the annual Career Fair at Southport Middle School and our community members really came through for this event! Professionals from a wide variety of careers volunteered to set up their displays in the cafeteria for our 7th and 8th grade students to explore career options. Each of the professionals set up displays with general information about their careers, the qualifications required and the types of tasks they are involved with, etc. Many invited students to experience their careers hands-on with drawing activities, social emotional ice breakers, computer games, and medical devices. Even animals, including a rescue dog were in attendance. The professionals also provided brochures and handouts for students to take home, review and share with their parents. This event is tied into the Naviance classroom lessons that School Counselors facilitate, which promotes career awareness and helps students develop a deeper understanding of their talents, skills, and personality traits, along with the opportunity to research and reflect on their suitable career choices. We are thankful to the business and service professionals throughout St. Lucie who came out in support of our future citizens.
