Highway 91 Career Fair Features 55 Presenters!
Leigh High School was host to a large Highway 91 Career Fair organized by the highway 91 guidance counselors. On October 3, grades 10-12 came to Leigh for the second annual Highway 91 Career Fair. Leigh students were joined by other area schools Howells-Dodge, Humphrey High, Clarkson, and St. Edward. Leigh freshmen also were able to participate in the event, while the elementary students did not have school for the day.
Curtis Tomasevicz, a former Cornhusker football player and 4-man bobsledding Olympic Gold Medalist, began the day by talking about his journey, life, and experience from high school to the Olympics. He also talked about believing in yourself and trying new things to get the most fun out of your life.
Businesses from Highway 91 and the surrounding area came to the career fair to talk to kids aspiring to enter that career field. There were presenters from careers in healthcare to agriculture and everything in between in four separate sessions—55 presenters in total! The seniors from all schools also participate in mock interviews, which many teachers from the area schools helped with.
Sophomore Brayden Loseke also shared his thoughts on his first career fair: “I thought it was a great experience, and I really liked that there were so many options available.”
