Eighth Annual Highlands 8th Grade Career Fair
The 8th grade Career Fair is held annually on the campus of Tennessee Technological University with over 1300 8th grade students in attendance. This annual event is designed to reach students before high school and prior to making career decisions or opting out of school all together. This fair, like each fair held since 2009, showcases the education attainment level required by job types, careers opportunities and earning potential. The program features a welcome by TTU President Phil Oldham, 16 speakers from area businesses, 32 companies sponsoring booths, and 20 volunteers who assist in making the event a success.
