College, Career & Military Readiness Fair

Greetings Northern Lehigh School District Stakeholders,


The Northern Lehigh High School (1 Bulldog Lane Slatington, PA 18080) will be holding a Career, College, & Military Readiness Fair on Friday, April 22, 2022 from 9:00am to 1:00pm for students in grades 7-12. The event will be held in the gymnasium.

Students will have four 50 minute sessions that are scheduled throughout the day so that they can rotate in and out of the gym to visit vendor tables. Students will be able to meet with, and gather information from, various post-secondary vendors and community organizations. These vendors include branches of the military, corporations, small local businesses, colleges, universities, technical schools, workforce programs, first responders, and community membership organizations.

The goal of the event is to provide education/information, to students, about career pathways. Additionally, we have some community membership organizations that have reserved tables so they can share information with our students about opportunities to help support their community.

As an additional bonus, some of our vendors have volunteered to bring hard assets such as vehicles and equipment. The vehicles will be on display on Snyder Avenue, the street between the high school and the middle school, and near the entrance of the High School. Some equipment will also be on display in the gymnasium near vendor tables.

As a grande finale, we are completing the required paperwork to request a flyover of the High School campus by the United States Air Force. If approved, the flyover will take place at 2:00pm. High School and Middle School students will be able to be dismissed to the outside of their respective buildings to view the flyover.

As the Northern Lehigh School District continues to strive toward our goal of building strong relationships with our community stakeholders, we would like to hold this event annually in April. We believe that this event is a great opportunity for organizations to provide valuable future ready skills and career pathway opportunities for our students. We look forward to seeing you at our Career, College, and Military Readiness Fair!


Sincerely,


Mr. Strohl

Assistant Principal Northern Lehigh Middle/High Schools
