Job Fair

On Thursday, May 6, 2021, Marlboro County High School students participated in a job fair at The Continuum in Lake City, South Carolina. Fifty-three students were able to meet with potential employers from across the state from over forty industries and businesses. Students participated in mock interviews, hands-on experiences, and were able to complete applications for employment. This experience provided students with valuable interactions with the business community to assist them in career planning and exploration. Moreover, it emphasized the importance of learning employability skills and practicing safety in the workplace.

Dr. Jamane Watson, principal of Marlboro County High, chaperoned the trip and was excited to see the students engaged in learning. “The students really enjoyed the hands-on experiences, and it sparked questions and discussions about our programs at the high school. I am proud of our students and their eagerness to take ownership of their learning,” stated Dr. Watson.

The Continuum is a regional center for education and training in innovative and technical skills and workforce development, created through the collaboration between the Darla Moore Foundation, Florence-Darlington Technical College, and Francis Marion University. Mrs. Wycilia Brown-Cassidy, Director of Career Technical Education, has toured The Continuum twice and has enjoyed seeing the students actively working and focused on what the future has in store for them. She stated that when speaking with the students on her first visit, many of them had a plan in place and have been offered employment in their program of study upon the completion of their high school diploma and certification. “This is a state-of-the-art facility with a focus on preparing students for the careers of the 21st century,” said Mrs. Brown-Cassidy. Marlboro County High School looks to continue this partnership with The Continuum and expand career opportunities for students.
