On Wednesday, October 7, 2015, a Career Day for juniors and seniors was held here at SJVHS. Our students were able to hear multiple presentations throughout the day given by more than twenty professionals ranging from an accountant to a veterinarian.
SJVHS President Joseph Deroba, was very pleased with the Career Day. “We had great speakers representing a wide variety of careers. Each one was very informative and interesting for our young men and women who will soon be deciding their future career paths. Our students are at a very important point in their academic life and benefited from hearing about the many and varied options that are available to them. We were very fortunate to have so many of our successful alumni and local professional come and share their experiences and expertise with our students at this special event.”
