Recap: 2018 My Future. My Way. Career Exploration Fair

Sponsored by Alignment Nashville, more than 6,000 Metro public high school freshmen participated in the tenth annual My Future, My Way Career Exploration Fair at the Music City Center. Students from all public and charter schools attended the event, where they learn first-hand about career opportunities from more than 150 area businesses and nonprofits - many of which will setup hands-on demonstrations of the work they do.

The 2018 My Future. My Way. Career Exploration Fair was a success!

Many thanks to Mayor Briley and local hero James Shaw for being part of this year’s Best in Show presentation.
