Students from a number of area schools learned more about their potential future career options Thursday, January 6, 2022 at Eighth Grade Discovery Day. Among the sponsors of the 8th annual event were Southeastern Oklahoma State University and the Southern Workforce Board. “It Starts Now’’ was the theme of the event. Some 300 students attended career job sessions offered by representatives from 16 different career clusters. The event was held at three locations on the Southeastern campus.
This event would not be possible without the community’s tremendous support and dedicated volunteers. Thank you to all of our sponsors and volunteers of this event!
