MARYSVILLE, WA – The Marysville School District Career and Technical Education (CTE) Department will welcome the United States Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps and other military professionals on May 10, 2018 for a day of learning and career exploration. Students in grades 11 and 12 from each Marysville School District high school will come experience the excitement at this one-of-kind career day event featuring all military branches.

This event is a first for the Marysville School District and its Career and Technical Education Department. Students will have an opportunity to get up close and personal with military equipment such as the Army’s Chinook Helicopter, a Coast Guard vessel, and Hummer trucks from the National Guard. Personnel from all braches of the military will also be present to share information on training, education, and other opportunities.

“This is not a military recruitment event, it is part of our goal as educators and advocates to show Marysville students every opportunity available for their future,” said Career and Technical Education Director, Donneta Oremus. “We’re proud of our partnership with the organizations in our community that protect and serve our country, and we appreciate their willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty to share experiences and opportunities with our students.”

“It is important for students to be exposed to as many career options as possible,” said Marysville Pilchuck High School Career and Technical Education Counselor, David Carpenter. “You never know what might spark interest in a student, and one experience may shift their trajectory for the better. It is our job to put as many opportunities in front of them so nothing passes them by.”

What: Military Careers Day When: Thursday, May 10, 2018, 7:30 a.m. – 2 p.m. Where: Marysville Pilchuck High School, Fast Pitch Quad Who: Students in grades 11 and 12 from Marysville Pilchuck High School, Marysville Getchell High School and the Tulalip Secondary Campus, as well as personnel from the Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, Navy and National Guard.
