2018 Career Exploration Fair-Thank you Exhibitors
I want to personally thank you all for an exceptional evening. The primary goal of this event was to bring together community professionals and students to connect and engage in career conversations. I truly appreciate each of you inspiring students to reach for their dream careers. I hope their excitement to learn about your career also inspired each of you.
What stood out most to me while walking around the extremely warm gymnasium last night was the enthusiasm that each exhibitor brought with them. This was evident not only in the conversations shared with guests, but in the actual exhibits themselves. Each one so wonderfully personalized and welcoming. There were some really brilliant visual efforts made not only to connect and welcome students but to showcase your businesses. Some that especially caught my eye were 3Seed Marketing’s less is more approach. Offering visual comfort to welcome students. Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Valley Partners complimented the unseasonal heat with Emmaus Hornet sunglasses. Go Hornets! I especially enjoyed the visual aspect that the Electrical Workers, Local Union 375 brought with them and will likely drive through town looking up at electrical poles for examples of what they shared. Bartlett Tree Experts shared a crowd favorite, a tree sapling! Now we can watch the tree and our children grow together. Last, but not least, my personal favorite, a stress relief ball courtesy of R.L. Reppert.
I must thank a few extra special companies for going above and beyond to support the event. A huge thank you to our event sponsor Red Robin who provided a delicious pre event meal for all to enjoy. YUMM. We forgive you for not bringing fries and look forward to their hopeful addition to your catering services in the future.
New Tripoli Bank for sponsoring the event social media and for supplying guests with a convenient event bag to tote around handouts. We look forward to the opening of the Buckeye branch!
Christmas City Studio for capturing the special event moments and sponsoring the EPSD student IPad raffle. Guests throughly enjoyed their personalized picture memento and silly Instagram frame pictures. I’m enjoying seeing student social media posts. The Emmaus Police department even took time to pose for an Instagram frame “mugshot.”
VIP Exhibitors, Spillman Architects, Burkholder’s Heating and Air Conditioning, and Macungie Animal Hospital, your support helped us provide guests with an exceptional experience and we thank you for partnering with us to ensure a successful event.
Thank you all for taking time out of your busy schedules to meet with students. I know how hard you work, and for many of you that work does not end when you leave for the day. Please be assured that you play an important part in student career exploration and I couldn’t be more proud to stand with you as we support the EPSD’s continual efforts to provide students with an exceptional academic experience.
We truly are EastPennProud with the support of our dedicated community partners.
Thank you again on behalf of the EPSD Education Foundation,
EPSD Education Foundation Director and Board Secretary
