Lowry High School’s College and Career Fair was held on November 7 and 8, where students were encouraged to wander the Old Gym and ponder their future.
UNR is a common destination for Lowry graduates, and Justin Bouldt is the man behind the persuasion.
“My goal is to get as many Lowry High School students as I can to think about going to college; so they can apply to the university and attend the university. Also, to just be prepared so they can be successful when they get there,” said Bouldt.
The mining industry in Nevada is booming (pun not intended), so there was no surprise to see multiple mining booths.
Brett Campbell was representing Barrick Mines and has been to the Career Fair before.
“My primary focus is what’s known as the MTC scholarship to get kids that want to get into skilled trades, diesel technology, welding, electrical instrumentation, etc. That scholarship in through Great Basin College and also gives students the opportunity to work at the mine while going to school,” said Campbell.
There are many opportunities in Nevada as well as its surrounding states as long as students are keeping their eyes open for them.
