On Sept. 26, 2019 nearly 2000 students gathered at Seven Feather’s Convention Center in Canyonville for the Southern Oregon Careers Trade Expo. This event, for which SOESD is the fiscal agent, is organized to introduce high school juniors and seniors, veterans, currently serving Military Personnel, and referred public and private agencies to exciting opportunities in many arenas. Some of these include aviation and rail, archaeology, construction trades, wildlandfire fighting, mechanics and more.
“I had no idea what sparked my interest, but being here made me realize that there are a lot more options than what it seems out there,” said Mary Burnett, a 12th grader.
SOESD attended the event to hand out t-shirts to students (pictured) and witness the activities in action.
