Casa Loma Hosts Career Fair

May 9, 2017 – Firemen, EMT’s, insurance specialists, farmers, policemen and various other professionals gathered at Casa Loma Elementary School ready to educate students and answer questions about their respective careers at the school’s First Annual Career Fair.

Hundreds of students had the opportunity to meet and talk to several members of the professional community, along with a chance to tour a working ambulance, observe an actual fire engine, sit in the back seat of a police car and get autographs from members of the Cal State Bakersfield women’s basketball team.

Food and music were also part of the event, creating a fun and festive atmosphere for everyone who attended. Students were encouraged to ask questions, participate in hands-on activities and take home informational materials in an effort to educate and motivate students in their career paths.

The day also included a motivating message from City Councilman Andrae Gonzalez who encouraged the students to never give up on their dreams.

Casa Loma invited all 3rd-5th Graders and their families to this event in order to give them inspiration to attend college and aspire towards future careers.  Most of the time, students are not exposed to the various career options available to them, so the school wanted to ensure that they start dreaming and setting goals now!
