On Oct. 18, more than 1,800 eighth graders from across Morgan County visited Ingalls Harbor Pavilion in on Day One of The Endless Opportunities (). Presented by @ Decatur and in partnership with the Hartselle Area Chamber of Commerce, the Association of Builders & Contractors, the Greater Limestone County Chamber of Commerce, and the North Alabama Workforce Development Alliance, the event is a hands-on expo where students get the chance to take part in career opportunity “worlds” connected to the 16 career clusters identified by the State of Alabama. Each student’s worlds are a result of their interest inventory captured through the Kuder Navigator System – administered as part of the school curricula – and student choice. Career worlds include Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources; Architecture & Construction; Arts, A/V Technology & Communications; Business Management & Administration; Education & Training; Finance; Government & Public Administration; Health Science; Hospitality & Tourism; Human Services; Information Technology; Law, Public Safety, Corrections & Security; Manufacturing; Marketing; Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM); and Transportation, Distribution & Logistics. Professionals from each area engage students in activities that will help explain how careers in each area are developed and how to prepare for each field of study. After attending the expo, students are better equipped to complete their four year plan, now part of each student’s high school requirements. On Day Two, 1,200 students from Limestone County Schools and Athens City Schools will take part.
