December 5th NC Freshman and Sophomores will be attending the Health, Tech and Trade Career Expo. The event is from 915 to 1045. Students will leave by bus at 830 to the Fargodome.

Doug had told me that I should let you know this information but he did not detail what exactly you would need to know that should be included on the web page? Do you need the time the event takes place and/or when we depart NC and when we will return?

Here is a link to this event as well.
