Fall 2009 Career Day
The Gallery at Penn College
High school students from school districts far and wide visited Penn College's campuses to learn about potential careers through a full Friday of exciting hands-on activities and informative tours. The college's Outreach for K-12 Office each fall organizes Career Day for students in 10th through 12th grades; a similar event for seventh- to ninth-graders is held every spring.
