LIU Hosts Career and Academic Planning Day for Students and their Parents

January 25, 2013

The Luzerne Intermediate Unit #18 is organizing "Looking Forward," a free all-day career and academic planning event for students and their parents on Saturday, February 23, 2013 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Misericordia University in Dallas, PA. This event, being offered in partnership with WVIA Public Media, is open to all northeastern Pennsylvania students, grades 8 through 12, and their parents.

Students will attend concurrently running workshop sessions covering a variety of career clusters, and the steps leading to informed career preparation and choice. Parents will have opportunities to explore ways in which they can assist their children with academic and career planning.

Bill Kelly, president and CEO of WVIA Public Media and host of the “Northeast Pennsylvania Business Journal” which airs on WVIA TV and FM, will open Looking Forward with an interview of Kris Jones, investor, author and founder of KBJ Capital.

Information booths will also be on-site for students and parents to interact with local colleges, universities and other members of our educational and business communities.
