Career Expo
  • Lewiston-Porter High School is calling for participants for its first annual Career Expo on Wednesday, March 22, 2023 from 1:15 – 2:40 p.m.


    An important objective of the high school Business Education Department is to provide students with real-world exposure to college and career opportunities available after graduation. The mandatory high school course, Career & Financial Management, is a valuable first step in introducing students to the world of work.  But now, through this event, students from 9th through 12th grade will have an opportunity to speak one-on-one with individuals in a variety of occupations and career pathways in the hopes of sparking an interest or answering questions regarding a budding career choice.


    Lewiston-Porter Business Education department is looking for volunteers to participate in the following areas:

    • Individuals from any career background, currently working or retired, who are interested in talking to students about their work experiences,
    • Trade workers or organizations who can discuss the benefits of skills-based training and occupations,
    • Military personnel who can talk with students about the process of joining the U.S. armed services, and
    • College representatives who would like to present their institutions’ academic offerings to students.


    Participants will man stations in the gymnasium with other professionals in a similar career area.  Students will move from station to station to ask questions, listen to career stories, and learn from current and former professionals in the field.
