Lamar Community College Hosts Successful Career Expo

(Lamar, Colorado; February 22, 2013) On Wednesday February 13, 2013 Lamar Community College’s Wellness Center was abuzz at the first annual Career Expo. With over 320 middle school, high school, and LCC students in attendance, the 75 vendors assisted students as they explored career options.

The Career Expo was designed to educate and inform students on various careers they could pursue. The goal was to align the Career Expo with Individual Career and Academic Plans (ICAP) standards for Colorado students. Before attending the Career Expo all students were asked to take an assessment that would place them into “clusters” within the Colorado Career Clusters Model (

During the expo students were designated to booths that matched their career interest according to the assessment. They spent 4 minutes at each table allowing them to speak with representatives from multiple career fields.

Kayla Tefertiller, Career Coach at LCC, stated “I am thrilled with the turnout we had at our first annual Career Expo. Students, sponsors, and vendors all commented on the professional quality of the event. A lot of hard work went into this day and I thank everyone who was involved.”

Students in attendance were from Campo, Cheyenne Wells, Eads, Granada, Holly, Kit Carson, Lamar, McClave, Springfield, Vilas, Walsh, Wiley and LCC.

If you have any questions about the Career Expo, or if you would like to be involved in next year’s event please contact Kayla Tefertiller at 719.336.1584 or
