Annual career fair prepares Bryan students for life after high school
Bryan Community Focus Program is jumpstarting its students' futures. The school recently invited several local businesses to its annual career fair.
“We are extremely thankful to all the professionals who took time out of their busy days to share information about their businesses with our Bryan community,” Bryan teacher and fair organizer Claudia Campbell said.
Professionals from Kawasaki, Elk Ridge Construction, Morrow Collision Center, State Farm, Union Bank and Trust, the U.S. Army and Baxter Auto stopped by to share their experiences with the students.
“It helped me think about the options I have after graduating,” Bryan ninth-grade student Haileigh said.
Bryan’s CFP career fair started in 2016 out of the program’s focus on future-ready planning and emphasis on different careers beyond what Lincoln Public Schools’ Take Charge career readiness curriculum provides.
“These opportunities are important for Bryan students because it allows them to find out about potential careers in a variety of fields,” Campbell added. “It exposes them to careers that they may have never considered otherwise.
Since then, the fair has evolved. Now, the school does it once each semester to reach more students – helping them better prepare for life after high school.
“The fair helped me find out about good jobs to apply for after school,” Bryan senior Kyle said.
Bryan Community Focus Program is an alternative high school program that combines high behavioral and academic expectations with innovative teaching designed to help students meet the requirements for a Lincoln Public Schools high school diploma.
