Satanta Jr.-Sr. High School Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) hosted its fourth annual Career & College Fair on February 15th. The event was held at Satanta High School in the main gym. Almost 400 students representing nine different schools came to experience what the businesses and schools represented at the fair had to offer. Thirty-seven businesses and colleges attended the fair. Representatives from different schools and workplaces traveled from all across Kansas, as well as from Oklahoma, to visit with area high school students about careers, job opportunities, training, and programs of study. The businesses and schools were as diverse as the students who attended the fair with presenters representing everything from welding to health care. “The Career & College Fair is a great experience for students of all ages to learn about the many opportunities available to them after high school. FBLA students work extremely hard to make this happen for their peers, and they seem to enjoy it as they want to continue the tradition in the future,” said Satanta High School business teacher Courtney Dunn who organized the event along with USD 507 counselor Stacy Salem.
