Benjamin Franklin School No. 13 College and Career Day

The annual College and Career Day was held on March 20th. The event brought together a diverse group of professionals from the local community and also displayed research for over twenty different colleges and universities. 

Chiropractors, NJ State Troopers, First Responders, Architects, Pilots, and Entrepreneurs were just a few of the many guests who shared their journeys and insights with the students.

Through interactive presentations, students learned about the educational paths needed for different careers, the daily tasks involved, and the most rewarding aspects of each profession. By meeting real-world professionals, students were able to gain a better understanding of how their interests and skills can translate into fulfilling careers. A special thanks to Board Member Jerry Jacobs for attending this wonderful event.
