Waynesville High School is holding our annual College Career Fair from 8:00-11:00 a.m. on OCTOBER 11th,  2019 (Friday) to expose WHS students about different colleges and career program opportunities. This day provides students with a dynamic and tangible experience that facilitates a connection between their academic pursuits and professional endeavors in the future.  WHS would love to have many different career paths available to the students; this allows students to see employment opportunities that they make take advantage of right after high school or a program they may want to pursue in college.


This event is scheduled during the school day to get all students involved. Approximately 400 HS students will go through our Career Day (8:00- 10:00),  as well as 300 Middle school students (10:00-11:00).
