Northwest Hosts Diversity Career Fair

Meridian, Miss. Northwest Middle School hosted its 3rd Annual Diversity Career Fair Friday.

Several different businesses, schools, and military branches from the area were on hand to introduce middle school students to possible career oaths.

"This is a way of helping students set their goals," said coordinator Deborah Ewing. "Our theme for this year is Northwest Middle School Preparing Students for Their Future. So we bring people in because that is the best resource for them to help them prepare for the future."

Each year school officials say they have found an increased awareness and understanding of the many different careers available to them.
