I the top photo High School students meet with law enforcement representatives and St. John Hardware representatives in the arena building at the fairgrounds during the Career Fair last Wednesday, Oct. 2. 400 students from 6 of the 8 high schools in Idaho and Lewis Counties were in attendance. There were 37 exhibitors registered but the BLM, Army Corps of Engineers and Idaho Air National Guard were unable to attend due to the government shutdown. According to coordinator Melisa Bryant of Ida-Lew  the exhibitors did a wonderful job of showing the students what employers are in the two counties, what career opportunities they have and what secondary and post secondary education will help them go to work for those employers. The middle photo shows students listening to a speaker talk about health care opportunities. In the lower photo students got the chance to drive a piece of heavy equipment.
