Deltona High students explore options at first-ever College and Career Expo
Students at Deltona High School were able to explore their post-secondary options at the first-ever College and Career Expo, held outdoors on campus Nov. 20.
Having both collegiate and career personnel speak to our students embodies Deltona High School’s fourth pillar for success: Ensuring that all students are college and career ready, said Brandy Meadows, Career & Technical Education (CTE) Facilitator.
Thirty-six vendors participated, including Daytona State College, Bethune-Cookman College, Keiser College, the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office, Deltona Fire Department, all branches of the Armed Forces, the American Red Cross, AdventHealth, Chinchor Electric, CareerSource Flagler/Volusia, Halifax Health and many others.
“There are many things here that I've never heard of,” said Health Academy junior Nadiyah Harris. “It will help people know more about a specific career. It will help people explore their opportunities.”
Morgan Crumpton, a senior in the Health Academy, agreed. “I feel like this was important because a lot of students don't know what they want to do after high school,” Crumpton said. “We've never had anything like this before. It's amazing to have it here for students.”
“DHS’ goal is to have students college and career ready upon graduation,” Meadows said. “This is an event that will help students be successful in their goals.”
Career Source Flagler/Volusia helped recruit the vendors for the event. “We are looking forward to continuing this partnership and making next year’s event even better,” said Dawn Palovich, Business Service Representative with CareerSource Flagler/Volusia.
