MERIC and OA Go Back to School

The Thomas Jefferson Middle School Gymnasium will be turned into a career carnival with games, speakers, and online career assessments April 29 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m, courtesy of MERIC and the Office of Administration's (OA) Office of Supplier & Workforce Diversity. The fair will offer 6th, 7th and 8th grade students information and inspiration as speakers from a wide spectrum of professions share their expertise, experience and educational backgrounds. Students will also have the opportunity to take instant on-line assessments to learn how their interests, abilities and personalities relate to career choices - and maybe win some cool prizes, too.

Says Gail Jones, Assistant to the Director of Supplier & Workforce Diversity, "Middle school is a crucial time in pre-teenagers' lives to start thinking about the career paths they will initiate in high school and carry through their professional lives. We hope this fair will jump-start their thinking, and we encourage every parent and middle schooler in Jefferson City to come to this fair, learn about themselves and their career path."

Scheduled speakers include:
