Western Wayne High School Students attended the Wayne County Collaborative Transition Expo. held on Oct. 22 at Ladore Lodge in Waymart. At the event, they learned about college and career opportunities. The event is designed to assist transitioning students with disabilities and their families.
Senior Rebeccah King enjoyed the knowledge she gained from the event.
“Representatives from different schools help you with your questions about college,” King, who aspires to study welding after graduation, explained. “They offered scholarship help, and I also learned about opportunities for employment available to me now. I learned that Woodloch Pines is hiring.”
Rebeccah’s classmate Becca Boots also thought she gained some valuable insights from the expo.
“I am very interested in culinary studies in college,” Becca explained. “I spoke to someone representing Lackawanna College’s culinary program, and I learned that they have a separate building on campus for that major. That made me even more interested in attending that school.”
All of the students who attended the transition expo. were happy to gain more knowledge about fields they can pursue after their time in high school.
