74 students in grades 3 and 4 had the opportunity to attend The Career Cafe during lunch. Our speaker, Mr. Mike Gerdich is The Director of Alumni Relations at St. Vincent College. He spoke to our students about his job, responsibilities and shared fun facts about St.Vincent College.
Our students were very engaged and asked many questions about college admissions, majors of study and collegiate sports available.
This was an informative and very fun Career Cafe for our students. Thank you, Mr. Gerdich and St. Vincent College for supporting our career awareness efforts and providing our students with fun draw-string book bags and pens.
