Fremont High School Students Attend Career Day

Fremont, Neb. – (Jan. 30, 2020) Fremont High School sophomores recently attended a regional career day, hosted at Midland University, along with students from 12 other schools. Students chose a career field of interest, such as marketing, agriculture, arts, government, health sciences or science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Attending career sessions to learn more about careers in their chosen field were some of the activities students were involved in. 

The event was organized by the Fremont Area Career Development Coalition, comprised of  the University of Nebraska Extension, Midland University, Metropolitan Community College, Fremont Public Schools, Area Health Education Center, Fremont Area Chamber of Commerce and Greater Fremont Development Council.  

Barb Pierce, Existing Business Director for the Greater Fremont Development Council said, “Many of these students are still exploring their options for the future, and events like these can open their eyes to many possibilities they had never even thought of.  And better yet, most of the opportunities are found at companies in their hometown, waiting and willing to help them find a career path right for them.”

“Fremont Public Schools is proud to have great partners in Midland University and Metropolitan Community College to give our students many career options, right here in Fremont,” said Mark Williams, Career and Technical Education Coordinator for Fremont Public Schools. “Fremont Public Schools supports career education for all students, no matter their career interests.”

“This is a great opportunity for Industry and Education to come together for the benefit of area students,” concluded Williams.
