Workforce Solutions Northeast Texas hosted the Learning Endorsements and Professions (LEAP) Expo for 8th grade students in Mount Pleasant on February 24th. This event aims to help 8th grade students explore career interests as they prepare to make an endorsement decision for high school. Area employers and programs from Paris Junior College participated in the event to give students a glimpse of career options in Northeast Texas. Students were able to ask questions and learn from local professionals. More than 30 employers and training programs participated in the event. Five local schools and more than 700 students were in attendance. We would like to thank our event sponsor, the Mount Pleasant Economic Development Corporation.
