BROADCAST TRANSCRIPT:

Preparing students for their futures. The College and Career Opportunity Fair at Godby High School is opening doors for students.

They’re weighing up their options.

This is the 3rd year this event has been hosted where college, and local and state career representatives are showing what’s on offering to students.

Many tables showed up. Some include FAMU, FSU, Amazon, and military opportunities.

The event is to encourage students, like Jason Brown, that their future is bright.

“Instead of being scared, being excited to be an adult outside of school,” said Brown, adding that he’s looking forward to considering more options after Friday.

“I might have one thing in mind, but I might find something new I like,” said Brown.

 

Teachers said this fair build on programs they offer to students while they’re still in school to jumpstart their careers.
