2019 WYHS Career Fair

WYAA, WYHS & the Whitehall Chamber of Commerce sponsored & coordinated our 2nd Career Fair on Friday, March 1, 2019 in the Russ Gregg gym.  20 WYHS students served as Career Ambassadors.  Special thanks to WYHS teachers & guidance counselors:  Pam Glass, Anthony Paletta & Lauren Taylor.  Joe Ryan was the Whitehall Chamber of Commerce representative & Joyce Hildenbrand Turnbull, 1969, served as the Career Fair coordinator.
