BAHS students 'perform amazingly' in career-based competition
Belfast Area High School juniors and seniors participated in Jobs for Maine Graduates' statewide Career Development Conference held March 28 at Thomas College.
Over the course of the day, Belfast students competed against their peers from across the state in such events as job interviewing, college admissions, prepared speech, communications, and numerous other employability and networking-related sessions.
"Belfast students were dressed professionally and conducted themselves in a mature, outgoing manner," according to Thomas Hart, JMG specialist at the high school. "Many reports were received throughout the day regarding how polite and respectful our students were."
In the competition, Tyler Salo won second place in Prepared Public Speaking, Rainey Knowlton took first place in Job Interviewing, Jesse Perry placed first in Junior College Admissions Interview, and, as a team, Belfast students took first place in Online Job Application Packet.
"All of our students competed with energy and vigor!" Hart said. "I am very proud of the effort and confidence displayed by our students. They were definitely taken out of their comfort zones and performed amazingly!"
