The Translation Academy at Morris Innovative High school hosted its 2nd annual job fair for the students at MIHS. The goal was to promote awareness about local jobs and careers in the area, and encourage future-forward thinking. The focus was also on how being bilingual can assist in job opportunities, since the Translation Academy uses those abilities.
Students were able to learn about event planning through the process, including inviting the community companies to attend and executing other logistical tasks. The event itself allowed students to hear firsthand from local companies about the many opportunities available to use their education in the workplace.
Paige Watts, over the Translation Academy, said MIHS students were empowered as they discovered career options that will help them make choices for their future. "We are blessed to live in a community such as Dalton that engages in reaching out to its youth," she said.
The following businesses graciously gave their time and energy to provide information to students:
|Student Assistance Program||La Voz|
|Real Living Elite||Bradley Wellness Center|
|Dalton Police Department||Wells Fargo|
|Hope 93.3||Engineered Floors|
|Whitfield County Sheriff Department||Whitfield County Fire Department|
|Calderin and Oliva||Atlantic Capital Bank|
|Dalton Fire Department||Alliance of Therapy Dogs|
