SMART Girls Career Fair

Sedro-Woolley SMART Girls explore nursing

Sedro-Woolley SMART Girls explore nursing.

Monday, May 13th marked the first SMART Girls Career Fair for the Sedro-Woolley SMART Girls group. Members were visited by local nurse and Club parent Tess Halverson to inform the kids about the field of health care and engage them in some of the basics of nursing. The girls were also able to quiz a Digital Arts Designer. Kelsey from the Bellingham Herald was able to illustrate an application of arts to a career. Local teacher and Club volunteer Renee Buchanan spoke to the girls about the importance of finding something that you love to do everyday when choosing your career path. The girls very astutely pointed out that each of the guest speakers at the event is a product of local education: Skagit Valley College’s School of Nursing, Western Washington University’s Digital Communications Program, and Western Washington University’s Woodring College of Education. 

By giving Sedro-Woolley SMART Girls the ability to interview and interact with these individuals, we were able to open there eyes to many possibilities for their futures. The girls completed a best-fit worksheet that helped them lay out a possible career path and began asking questions about what kind of schooling would be required to enter those occupations.
