Students to sample careers at Ellsworth High School expo

Area students will get to experience employment opportunities during a Career Expo being planned by Ellsworth High School at the Pierce County Fairgrounds on Friday, Sept. 17. Parents and the public are invited.

The list of exhibitors keeps growing, APEX Instructor Dave Berg of EHS said Wednesday. Participation continues to increase, too, as all local students in grades eight and up will attend, as will approximately 100 students from Plum City High School, plus some students from Prescott and St. Croix Central high schools, along with those from perhaps two-to-three other schools.

"It's a lot of hands-on involvement, not just talk," Berg said, indicating about 1,000 students total are expected.
