WASHOUGAL — Jemtegaard Middle School students had the opportunity to interact with people from various professions at their annual career fair. A new addition this year was representation from Washougal High School’s Career and Technical Education program. Students offered information to eighth-graders about classes in culinary arts, welding and American Sign Language. “Our eighth-graders have attended the career fair when they were in sixth and seventh grades and have seen many career presentations,” Principal David Cooke said in a news release. “This new feature of having students exposed to Washougal High School CTE classes is a great way to help prepare them for high school and the exciting career pathways available to them.” Middle school students also had the opportunity to learn from a physical therapist, paramedic, Coast Guard employee, firefighter, wetland biologist and natural resource scientist, pilot, welder, carpenter, plumber, news photographer and other professionals.
