For the past 11 years, Ninth Grade Academy students have invited professionals from local businesses and organizations to share their insights and expertise with them on NGA Career Day. In 2018, over 40 experts from more than a dozen career fields were welcomed to the event. Each career group outlined their field and job responsibilities, and answered questions from interested students. Several speakers, like Rory Weilnau, a civil engineer with Stantec Consulting Services, are C-C HS alumni themselves, and remember their own experiences with Career Day.
Areas of interest represented included digital arts, social media and photography, business and marketing, computer science and information technology, engineering and manufacturing, healthcare services and health sciences, architecture and construction, law and public safety, culinary arts or animal science.
