The following schools and organizations attended the event:

  • Educational Opportunity Center
  • Glenmont Job Corps
  • Golden Paws Pet Grooming
  • HVCC Workforce Development Institute
  • Maria College

“The career focused college/trade school fair was a great success,” said Lori Dunigan who oversees vocational education at Columbia. “This was a great event that exposed students to training programs that they would otherwise know nothing about. I can’t wait to make it bigger and better next year.”
