Community Involvement Needed For CSAS Career Fair

Tuesday, January 9, 2018

The CSAS Middle School guidance office is in the process of organizing Career Fair 2018 for middle/high school students and needs the community's help.  

"With the Chattanooga economy continuing to thrive, this Career Fair is extremely important," said Rena Walton, CSAS 6th-9th grade counselor. "We need to show students how this community is becoming the blueprint for the nation in terms of redeveloping its financial structure.  I want to personally challenge you and your company to enlighten our students about the importance of education and the benefits in/around the Chattanooga area by taking an active role in this fair. Regardless of your career field, we want our kids to hear about it."  

The CSAS guidance office designates March as Career Awareness Month.  It begins by interpreting 8th and 10th graders KUDER results. This tool identifies each student’s area of interest and matches those interests to a career while evaluating their academic progress.  

Then it sponsors a Career Fair so students can explore a variety of occupations with people who are currently in that field. 

"We need as many companies as possible to volunteer for three hours on March 9," said Ms. Walton. 

The career fair will be held in the main gym from 1-3:45 p.m. with lunch provided.  Companies and entrepreneurs can set up booths or tables to provide information about their career and/or place of employment.   

If interested in volunteering (CSAS parents receive eight volunteer hours), please call Ms. Walton at 209-5830 or email @ to reserve a spot.
