Nodaway-Holt First Annual College & Career Readiness Day

March 31, 2022

On Tuesday, March 29 the Nodaway-Holt Jr/Sr High School held their first annual College & Career Readiness Day, organized by the school counselor Mrs. Hallie Ginther.

In the morning, students had the option of taking either the ACT or PreACT, and seniors that were not taking the ACT went on a job shadow in their field of interest. Students not participating in those three options listened to guest speakers on the following topics:

  • Mental Health Awareness with representatives from Northwest Missouri State University
  • Skill & Career Assessments with Youth Alliance
  • Northwest Career Services
  • Cyber Security/Social Media with Deputy McDonald
  • Healthy Relationships with Northwest Missouri Children’s Advocacy Task Force and North Star

Following the morning opportunities, a Career Fair was held in the high school gym where 40 different businesses and employers came to speak with Nodaway-Holt students about their career and company, the level of education they had to have to obtain their job, different educational institutions, job locations, salary range, job overview, and job outlook.

The fair was broken down into career clusters with multiple representatives from the Health Services, Industrial & Engineering Technology, Human Services, Natural Resources - Agriculture, Business Management & Technology, Arts & Communication, Military, and Colleges, Universities, and Tech School employment fields. Of those eight main career clusters, the clusters were broken down even further with representatives from 25 subcategories.

Nodaway-Holt plans to host a College & Career Readiness Day, similar to this year, annually. Though it was held solely for the 7-12 Nodaway-Holt students this year, Nodaway-Holt hopes to grow the Career Fair and provide the opportunity for neighboring districts in the future.
