Annual College and Career Day
On October 12, 2019
On October 12, 2019, YMWIC hosted our Annual Career and College Expo at B. Reed Henderson High School. This year’s focus was to provide the community with valuable career, college and academic readiness information.
Therefore, we invited 14 professionals in Finance, FAFSA, Public Speaking, Personal Branding, The Application Process and many others. The professionals provided our families and the community with worthwhile literature and opportunities to receive relevant information. Meanwhile, we invited a small group of local colleges to inform the community about the programs offered.
Our keynote speaker for the event was author and educator, Mr. Vic Brown. Barbara Gee, YMWIC Advisory Board Member, was the facilitator for the activity before an audience of over 150. Mr. Brown is the author of the book “Welcome to College, Your Career Starts Now!” Over 30 Scholars present received an autographed book by Mr. Vic Brown.
Look for the details our next College and Career Day planned for Saturday, Oct 10, 2020.
