Career Choices and FBLA attended a field trip to the Portland Expo Center on Friday, December 6th. Students toured the facility, learning about its time as a livestock auction facility, then becoming a Portland Assembly Center during World War II where many Japanese-Americans stayed before being transported to internment camps, they learned about its time during the Vanport flood, and how they became a successful exposition center today. Students were able to hear from many of the employees at the facility from sales managers, event managers, operations director, and the director of the entire facility. At the end, students were able to enjoy the Christmas Bazaar that was currently being held at the Expo Center during our time there.
Publications students were able to conference call with a Walsworth artist and design this year's yearbook cover. We connected with her through a special link that allowed us to project what she was doing on the white board. Students worked with her real time and gave her input as we watched her put together our cover. Finalizations need to be made, but Pub students are very excited about what they have come up with.
