MEC Prep hosts Career Love Day

Mapleton Early Career Prep (MEC Prep) 9-12th grade students networked with professionals in the community to gain exposure to different career opportunities as part of their Career Love Day!

Representatives from Ball Aerospace, United, Clinica Family Health, City of Thornton Fire Department, and other career fields talked to students about what they love about their jobs, navigating the hiring process, job readiness, and their personal experiences in their respective fields.

"I'm excited about the variety of speakers here," MEC Prep Director Robin Graham said. "There are many careers here students haven't had exposure to."

Thank you to all our guest speakers for taking time from your day to meet with our students!
