Brighton High School will be hosting its first county-wide career and technical education career expo next week. 

The event aims to help students learn more about careers which require apprenticeships, trades, technical school degrees, or any other pathway which is an alternative to four-year college degrees, organizers said. 


Students will be able to interact with employers and educational institutions which may offer them opportunities beyond the traditional college and university experience. 

Organizers are looking for businesses/trades who would like to be a part of our event.

“By showcasing your business/trade, you will meet your future workforce and educate young people about your trade,” said April Howard. “There are so many opportunities our students miss due to lack of knowledge about trades and how to get involved.”

Howard would like to invite businesses and industries to set up hands-on displays that allow students to engage with industry leaders, equipment, materials, and much more.

“We are hopeful many students will also find opportunities to tap into their unique skills and interests.”

The expo is available to all Tipton County students and will take place at the high school from 4-7 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 27. If you have any questions, please contact April Howard, via email or by phone 901-840-9432.
