The Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) of Coral Gables Senior High School hosted its second annual Career Fair in the school gymnasium on Thursday, Feb. 7.
The Career Fair offered students who will not be attending a four-year institution after high school the opportunity to explore other post-secondary job and education options. Representatives from different companies and colleges set up tables in the gym and offered students information about their organizations.
Exhibitors included the Coral Gables Police Department, the U.S. military, vocational and technical colleges, culinary institutes, local employers, a massage certification program and a self-defense instructional course.
“It’s very varied, and that’s the whole point — to get students to be interested. They need a direction and some goals, so this would introduce them to what’s in the community, ” said PTSA Vice President Gail Poe-Liu.
The Wrecking Crew was a famed Los Angeles collective of studio musicians who backed everyone from Simon & Garfunkel to the Beach Boys in the 1960s, and the Carpenters to the Captain & Tennille in the 1970s.
Persistence paid off for an Archbishop Coleman Carroll senior. She asked (and asked) and ultimately received Dwyane Wade as her prom date.
