Local high school students take a break with Scooter McCougar, the SCC mascot, at the Business and Social Sciences Career Fair held Feb. 24 at St. Charles Community College.

Approximately 200 students attended three 25-minute sessions on topics of their choice taught by SCC business and social science faculty. After attending the classes, students reconvened for a pizza party with friends.

Session topics included accounting, anthropology, business, business administrative systems, computer science, child care, criminal justice, economics, education, human services, marketing, multimedia and Web design, psychology, sociology and the A+ program.

“Today, high school students are faced with so many more career choices than they were a decade ago, and there is pressure to choose a major or make a choice,” said Pat Porterfield, interim dean of business, computers and social sciences at SCC. “It can be overwhelming, so talking with someone in a specific career can help students with their decision making.”

The career fair is sponsored by the SCC Business and Social Sciences Division, SCC School-Business Programs and Mid Rivers Tech Prep Consortium. For more information, contact Porterfield at 636-922-8607.
