Mercer Island High School is asking for another 20 community volunteers to discuss their jobs and industries at a May 13 Career Day for freshmen and juniors between 9:30 and 11:30 a.m.
“We have such a wealth of experience in this community from which our students can find inspiration,” said Mercer Island School District Superintendent Dr. Gary Plano. “It would be a tremendous benefit to our students if some of our community members would speak about different industries and what it takes to start a career in those industries.”
If interested and available, potential presenters are asked to submit their name, title, company, industry and contact information online. Presenters will be allotted two back-to-back 30-minute sessions to share experiences specific to their careers.
The district has extended the deadline for accepting volunteers and nominations through April 22. Questions about the process or presentations should contact MIHS BRIDGES Coordinator Charlie Hilen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
