The 8th Grade Career Fair was a first good step in the right direction to help area kids take control of their lives, futures and careers. It is just a start though. Much more has to be done ahead in the community to prepare kids of the area for future. Talks and messages from the event have to be put into actions mainly by kids with help from their parents. Many good hearted people with support from some businesses made this important event a success. Thanks to Senator Susan Paddock’s vision about this event. Many more events like this must happen in the future as well to reinforce the values and messages from the event. Kids’ parents play the most significant role in their kid’s present and future life. In addition, good hearted individuals, civic organizations, businesses, churches must come together actively to support sincere initiatives towards educational improvement in our community. Good job again on the 8th Grade Career Fair and my salute to these leaders of our community.
