    The Nemaha Central Middle School participated in a career fair on Tuesday, April 24.  Mrs. Laurie Niehues, the school counselor, organized this event for the middle school students. The career fair started with the keynote speaker, Mrs. Barbra Vitt. Mrs. Vitt talked about how students could achieve success at school by sharing several school stories from her career. Students then were dismissed for their first session with local presenters.

    Mia Schmitz said, "It was very educational and I really enjoyed the keynote speaker and all the great tips that she gave." 

     One of the presenters was Cara Baker, who talked about what courses students could take in high school through Highland Community College. Zach Hanner and Eric Osterhaus were the agriculture presenters and they talked about how the Nemaha County COOP helps farmers with their crops. Mrs. Vitt also had several smaller presentations where she talked about education, the importance of school, and how she has influenced others.

    Alex Bergstrom and Connie Ronnebaum were the health science presenters. They talked about their occupation as Emergency Medical Technicians.  They discussed how they take people on stretchers, how they take vitals, and how to use a Physio-Control Life Pack.  Matt Rehder discussed government and public relations. He talked about Seneca's water system and electrical system. Another presenter was Jeanette Sperfslage, who talked about human services. She talked about how she helps young children in NEKAP get prepared for school. She assists many individuals in the area by writing grants for programs and assisting families in need. Another presenter was Megan Schultejans, who talked about public transportation. She talked about the history of Southwest Airlines and the many occupations associated with the airline company. Last but not least, there were career technological pathway booths set up and with information presented by the Nemaha Central High School students. The information presented was about different career pathways available at the high school for students to focus their education.

    "I learned a lot of new things and I think it could help kids in the future," said Isaac Lueger.

    Mya Ganstrom said, "It was great and one-of-a-kind."
