WASHOUGAL — Jemtegaard Middle School students had the opportunity to learn about different types of jobs at their annual Career Fair on Feb. 27. Washougal High School Career and Technical Education students and instructors presented information to eighth-graders, including students from Canyon Creek Middle School. The goal was to help connect students to courses they can take at Washougal High School, including culinary arts, wood and metal technology, media arts, health sciences and American Sign Language. Careers and businesses represented included personal training, civil engineering, law, event planning, home inspection, nursing, firefighting, plumbing, tattoo art, television news, marketing, cosmetology, education and more. “Most of the eighth-grade students have attended the career fair the past two years and have seen many career presentations,” Washougal School District Career and Technical Education Director Margaret Rice said in a news release. “These presentations help to expose incoming ninth-grade students to opportunities available to them in high school. It is a great way to help prepare them for next year and the years to come and start some excitement around the career pathways they’ve been learning about. This also gives our WHS students a chance to talk about their experiences with these courses and how it has helped them to shape their plans beyond high school.”
