Macks Creek hosted their 1st Annual Career Fair today. This career fair focused on helping bring together community resources around Macks Creek and Camdenton. We were proud to open up this opportunity to explore a multitude of career options to our students this school year. The career fair hosted a number of local employers such as; Oak Star Bank, Walmart, Big Thunder Marine and Lake Regional Health System. We had the following colleges and technical schools attending; State Fair Community College, Central Methodist, Southwest Baptist, Lake Career and Technical Center, Ozarks Technical Community College and Capital Academy. We also had military recruiters from the Army and National Guard. As well as our Mid County Fire Department, Camden County Sheriff's Department and Missouri State Corrections. This is our first big Career Fair since Covid and we are so proud to start a new annual tradition that will only grow each year in size with the focus on helping our students explore career options to achieve their life goals.

Freshman students learn about our Dual Credit program with State Fair Community College because it is offered starting the summer before Sophomore year and is a huge leap forward for many of our students who want to start taking college classes early and graduate with their Associates Degree at the same time as their High School dIploma.
Students got to also learn about the career opportunities with the Camden County Sheriffs Department. From career opportunites in records, dispatch, corrections and sworn officers.
We are so thankful for everyone who was a part of our Career Fair this year. After speaking with multiple students about the event, they now have a broader idea of different opportunities that are out there in the world.
