"Harmony School of Excellence Austin hosted their annual College and Career Fair where High school students had the chance to engage with college recruiters and industry professionals. It was an informative event where students learned about future opportunities while practicing soft skills. Representatives from the University of Texas at Austin, Texas State University, Huston-Tillotson University and Texas Tech University shared information on college applications and acceptance. Students also learned Latino voting right opportunities with Texas-based multi-issue organization, JOLT. Professionals from Mexic-Arte Museum, Austin Police Department, RBFCU, and Girl Scouts of central Texas were in attendance to field questions from students on career exploration and workforce readiness."
