BOONEVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - Two events worked to help students find a career path.
The "Imagine the Possibilities Career Expo" and the Northeast Mississippi Community College Career and Tech Fair are annual events focused on helping students.
At NEMCC, more than 2,000 high school students visited the campus on Thursday to learn about available careers.
The fair showcased programs at the college such as automotive technology, welding, health sciences, and much more.
More than 30 different vendors were on-site, as well as a band to make this year better than ever.
The "Imagine the Possibilities Career Expo" was held during the first week of October in Tupelo.
It featured various industries and allowed thousands of 8th-grade students an opportunity to have a hands-on look at careers.
This is the fifth year of the expo.
Kristy Luse, the vice president of the Toyota Wellspring Fund at the CREATE Foundation, said the expo is something they will continue to hold annually.
“The response we’ve received has been great," she said. "Students really get to grasp the options available to them upon leaving high school or after college."
Coordinators for these events said they will continue to help students next year, and they will need volunteers.
