This time of year, freshmen, sophomores and juniors at Polk County High School are thinking about their future, and what path they will take to find a career when they graduate.

To help facilitate this, the Tryon Rotary Club will again host a career fair on Tuesday, Nov. 19, from 8:30-11:15 a.m. in the high school gym. Students will prepare for this with a list of businesses participating and a general list of questions to ask.

The Rotary Club is looking for local business owners to exhibit at this fair so a broad range of jobs can be presented to the students.
