Granada High Career Fair Opens Pathways for Students

Dan works for the Alameda County Sheriff’s department. His job in the bomb disposal unit is both dangerous and fulfilling. He recently attended the 6th Annual Career Technical Education (CTE) Career Fair at Granada High School (GHS) on Wednesday, February 27, 2019 to inform students about a career in law enforcement. Dan, however, is not a big talker, so his partner, Alameda County Sheriff Deputy Brandon Dennington, answered questions. Brandon was able to provide information on the pathway to a career with the Sheriff’s department. Then Brandon kneeled down and scratched his partner Dan, an explosives detection dog, behind the ears and invited the students to do the same.

Attendees walked into the GHS gym and were greeted by a refreshment table provided by Granada’s Culinary Arts students. Then they turned left or right to begin their journey around the perimeter of the gym to speak with eager company representatives. Granada’s Career Center and the Rotary Club of Livermore Valley (RCLV) partnered for the first time this year as a way to grow the event. Over 30 businesses, both repeat and new participants, attended and spoke to over 500 enthusiastic students who had the opportunity to explore a wide variety of career paths.
