Proviso West Students Get a Glimpse into Their Futures with Career and Education Fair

Proviso West High School worked to help their sophomore and freshmen students get a glimpse of the future by hosting a career and college fair. On Thursday, April 28th the Proviso West field house was filled with professionals, organizations, colleges, and teachers who hoped to help students chart their future course.

 “This is a great way to show them various opportunities and make them aware of the many choices that are out there,” said Proviso West math teacher and fair participant, Mr. Harman. “We have culinary schools, Loyola University, Kendall College—all of these great choices. If we can encourage them in the right direction, that’s good.”

The fair included: Loyola School of Nursing;  cosmetology, engineering, and culinary schools,  the armed forces,  law enforcement,  and youth services programs that work with students on building job skills and summer job placement. Students had an opportunity to speak with representatives and professional from diverse fields and backgrounds.

“The fair was good,” said Proviso West freshman Lorenzo Washington. “It helps us see what’s out there, and we get a better idea of what we’d like to do during and after college. The College of DuPage was my favorite. They have sports, and they offer a good education. I think they will definitely be one of my college choices.”

Proviso West freshman Raven Montgomery agreed as she stood in line to get more information about cosmetology school.

“I have always wanted to do hair,” she said. “I watch my mother and my sister do hair all the time. So this booth caught my interest. This could be a good school choice.”

Senator Kimberly Lightford (D-Maywood) also participated. She spoke and encouraged Proviso West students to pursue higher education, keep their focus, and follow their dreams.
