The Greater Gainesville Chamber's Alachua County Education Compact and their partners Santa Fe College and the Alachua County Public Schools invite all middle and high school students and their parents/guardians to attend the 5th Annual Career Discoveries Day. This career showcase and exhibition is taking place this Saturday, November 16th, from 9 am to noon at Buchholz High School, located at 5510 NW 27th Ave.

Career Discoveries Day offers students and their parents a sneak peek into local, emerging career opportunities in Distribution & Trade, Business Support Services, Agriculture Science & Technology, Human Life Sciences, and Digital Technology. Attendees will engage with exhibitors as they share their selected career pathway and existing opportunities in their industries. Maxwell L. Minch, a partner at GrayRobinson's Law Firm, is the featured keynote speaker. He will share his story of how he rose to success by creating his own pathway, shaped by a career technical education and his experiences serving in the U.S. Navy.

Additional speakers include: Karen Oakey with Fracture, who will speak on talent management; Kristin Schreiner with Junior Achievement, who will present JA MyWay Career Pathway; and Tia Brock with The Education Foundation of Alachua County and Shareen Baptiste with Dream on Purpose, who will co-present on college finances.
