Turning the Tide for a Brighter Future

fair_00The first ever Opportunity Fair on Bolivar was a huge success. The Texas Crab Festival Charities sponsored event brought college representatives, industry and military professionals, and county and state agencies to Crenshaw School on Saturday to present a variety of educational, employment, and career opportunities. The Fair attracted over forty Bolivar residents of all ages. Participants were able to talk to educators from six different area colleges about entry level courses, trade school programs and career advancement training. Representatives from the Port of Galveston, Galveston County, and GISD were on hand accepting applications for open job positions. The US Coast Guard was there, as well as medics from Peninsula Emergency Medical Services, explaining opportunities in their respective fields. Interested applicants were also able to sign up for a certified Fork Lift Training course to be offered next month on Bolivar. “The Fair exceeded all our expectations for an inaugural event,” said Gerry Lang, TCFC Board Member.

A big Thank You is extended to the schools and organizations who participated. And Special Thanks to Josh Hayes, College of the Mainland Adult Education Director, for providing guidance in setting up the event.
