The Cape Hatteras High School gymnasium was filled with opportunities for the 2022 College & Career Fair on November 17, 2022.
All the students from the Hatteras Island School marched past the displays. Middle sixth through eighth graders came first, followed by high school students.
Island, county and area businesses set up displays. Local and state government organizations posted all types of jobs, from emergency medical services to the workplace to the US Postal Service.
The US Coast Guard sent a contingent inside and a helicopter outside which landed on the sports field. A representative of the army was also present. The colleges came. And among all the exhibits, graduates from Cape Hatteras High School were talking to students about their jobs and businesses, as well as their education or training.
