Literacy & Technology Center Holds
4th Annual College and Career Day for Parish Students
WALKER, La. – High school juniors and seniors from throughout the parish met with college representatives, military recruiters, industry and business leaders and several hiring agents during a day-long College and Career Day on Feb. 17 at the Livingston Parish Literacy & Technology Center.
LPLTC Director Kim Albin said students were introduced to a variety of career options with information on those skills and education needed for the available positions and opportunities.
“This event is always strongly supported by our local businesses and industries, as well as our post-secondary colleges and institutes. Many of our students walk away with valuable information that help them gain better direction for their future,” Albin said. “Career Day is always a great way for our students to look at the many options that exist in today’s job market.”
The center hosted two information sessions. The first group of students met with guests and advisers from 7:35 a.m. to 9:15 a.m., while the second group of students attended from 12:35 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. Students were asked to list their top three career choices, and they were assigned meetings based on those selections.
