Willimantic, CT - Six social work students from Eastern Connecticut State University are working with the faculty and staff at Natchaug School to host a "Let Your Inner Star Shine Far" educational career fair on Thursday, April 15, 2010, from 9 a.m. to noon.
Jessica Bachand, Erica Holloway, Lisa Johnson, Jonathan Myette, Samantha Sorensen and Heather Wheeler want to provide third- and fourth-grade students at Natchaug School with valuable information to get them thinking about their futures and to encourage pathways to higher education and sustainable careers. In the midst of a recession and a struggling community, Eastern students are reaching out to the local youth to empower them and put them on a path for success.
In addition to brightening Natchaug students' futures, "Let Your Inner Star Shine Far" also provides Eastern students with real-life experience to aid them in their common goal of becoming social workers and making the world a better place.
