Lee High Seniors Participate in Senior Sprint with the Chamber of Commerce

Over 50 seniors from Lee High School attended the Senior Sprint event on May 1, 2019. The event offers graduating students job opportunities straight out of high school. Students brought their resumes and spoke with different employers. Companies like AT&T, Vulcan Materials Company, and Publix set up booths. Event organizers say about 34% of graduating students in Madison County choose to enter the workforce instead of going to college.

The Senior Sprint Career Fair will create a bridge from high school to the workforce and provide graduates with several career and training opportunities. For many students, the absence of knowledge prevents them from making firm future-based decisions. This fair seeks to raise awareness of careers for graduating seniors across all three school districts in Madison County and aim them toward a fruitful future.
