Bladen County Schools Career Day took place on May 7 at West Bladen High School and on May 10 at East Bladen High School.

The information sessions, education and trade show is an annual, collaborative effort by the businesses, public services, and educational institutions of the surrounding community, according to officials at West Bladen.

Brian Campbell and Campbell Oil Company started sponsoring the event three years ago. Campbell said in an email the expo style format was to allow for businesses and professionals to recruit students for their company and profession for full-time or part-time employment.

Campbell extended his thanks to everyone involved.

Juniors and Sophomores attended workshops and spoke with local business leaders at the expo tables in the school gyms. Students were asking for internships and jobs.

Brett Pool with McDuffie Pest Control said, “I’m really hopeful because we did get two good applications.”
