College/career fair in Marysville on April 22

The third annual Opportunity Expo presents Marysville students with a wide variety of options for post-graduation.


More than 120 college, tech, trade, vocational, civic and military representatives will be at the 2014 Opportunity Expo to help Marysville students achieve their post-graduation goals.

The third annual Opportunity Expo will be on April 22 at the Tulalip Resort Orca Ballroom and Chinook rooms from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Juniors from the Marysville School District will be transported to the event for sessions at 8 a.m., 9:45 and noon. The 1:45 p.m. session is open to all students, parents, staff and community members.

The Expo is a “dynamic college and career fair to help prepare students for life after high school,” writes Jodi Runyon, Marysville School District assistant to the superintendent.

"I cannot overstate the impression that this makes on the vendors," said board president Tom Albright at a March 24 school board meeting. "I think the comment I've heard the most is that people's minds have been expanded because they have this assumption of what high school kids are like and they meet real kids with real interests and good questions."

More than 100 exhibitors will be on hand, including Boeing, Frontier Communications, King County, City of Marysville, Snohomish County, Providence Hospital, Puget Sound Energy, various universities and colleges, apprenticeship programs and trade schools.

They are meant to provide opportunities for students to discuss post-graduation life.

Students can learn more about continuing education, career and work options, scholarships, financial aid, 2-year and 4-year colleges, tech and trade schools, service and volunteer opportunities, military options and college applications.

The Opportunity Expo is provided through a partnership between Marysville School District, Tulalip Tribes, Marysville Rotary and the Rotary Education Foundation.
