Inaugural Middle School Career Conference set for Jan. 20

On Wednesday, Jan. 20, the first annual Auburn Area Middle School Career Conference will run from 7:55 a.m. to 10 a.m. at Cascade Middle School and from 11:55 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Mt. Baker Middle School.

Auburn School District, Auburn Area Chamber of Commerce and Communities in Schools of Auburn are partnering together to encourage middle school students to stay engaged in school, plan appropriate high school course of study, graduate from high school on time, and set goals for successes beyond high school.

A 20-minute college-bound program awareness assembly kicks off the career conference, followed by four 15-minute breakout sessions with 18 local business professionals and representatives from six community and technical colleges and a four-year university.

Middle school students from Valley Christian School will be participating in the event with students from Mt. Baker Middle School during the afternoon session.

For more information, contact Rod Luke, assistant superintendent, K-12 student learning and district technology, at (253) 931-4903.
