Merry Acres students glimpse future

Career Fair at Merry Acres

Students at Merry Acres Middle Magnet School got a glimpse of their possible future today.

The school's career fair aimed to encourage students to begin thinking about a career path before they enter high school.

Representatives from law enforcement agencies, local colleges and universities, and even martial arts schools were on-hand to provide information and leadership.

Organizers believe students are more likely to stick to a career plan the earlier they start one.
