The Fairfield High School gym echoed Thursday with the sounds of students learning about opportunities for their future, and with 40 booths of businesses from the medical field to construction, there was a lot for students to take in.
Vanessa Garcia, 14, a freshman, is still deciding what she wants to do after high school.
“I don’t know yet,” she said. “Maybe I want to be a lawyer or a registered nurse.”
Her friend Leslie Rangel, 16, still has a few years left of high school but she might have her plans nailed down. She learned a little from some of medical tables, and visited the U.S. Marine Corps booth.
