The importance of education was the foremost message from presenters at the James Hart School Career Fair on Feb. 24.

Students spoke with an engineer, a chemist, a nurse, a railroad safety operator, an information technology specialist and students in training for operating room technologist. These professions require an associate’s degree, a bachelor’s degree or a master’s degree.
“By hosting an annual STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) career fair, we are showing our students real-life applications for the ideas they’re researching and the projects they’re creating in our Smart Lab,” said teacher Cheri Pesina who organized the fair.
