We had a great Career Day at Maple Mountain! 38 presenters and 20 vendors volunteered their time to come and teach students about their careers. Students were able to choose 2 speakers from the list which gave them a lot of flexibility in finding an occupation that interested them. We appreciate the companies for letting their speakers come and take the time to speak with our kids. Our ProStart team, under the direction of Savannah Davies, catered the lunch for the speakers.
