2022 Logan County Career Expo

Bellefontaine High School students now have more career options.

High school juniors and seniors attended the 6th annual Logan County Career Expo at Indian Lake High School last Thursday.

The Logan County Chamber of Commerce, Logan County Job and Family Services, and Midwest Regional Educational Service Center coordinated the expo, which was the largest to date. Over 100 businesses met with potential employees.

Several industries were represented at the event, including manufacturing, law enforcement, food service, agriculture, health care, and the armed forces.

Students from Bellefontaine, Benjamin Logan, Indian Lake, Riverside, Ridgemont, Upper Scioto Valley, Kenton, and Ohio Hi-Point Career Center attended the expo.

BHS students completed their profile and researched local companies before attending the event.

High school students are encouraged to explore What’s Your E.

The 3E’s stand for Employed, Enlisted, and Enrolled.

The goal is to ensure that prior to graduation, every student in Logan County has committed to either: Employment at a local company, Enlistment in the military, or Enrollment in a 2- or 4-year college.

Adults attended the expo from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Interviews and hiring happened during the event.

Bellefontaine High School Marketing Management Teacher and DECA Advisor Katie Rychener was thrilled with this year’s expo.

She said, “We’re grateful to Karen Sorreles, Ben Vollrath, and all members of the Logan County Collaborative that work to put together events such as the career expo.

“Bellefontaine students certainly benefit from these authentic experiences, especially as the school year comes to a close. This helps our students find employment and network with community leaders. Our goal is that each BHS senior will select their E by graduation.”
