Education & Career EXPO in a Virtual World!

Someone might ask, “Who moved my cheese?” as our traditional routines were turned upside down by the current pandemic and we had to shift gears to find new and creative ways to reach our goals. The Education & Career EXPO was no exception. In the past, students from across the RGV traveled to a designated venue and had the opportunity to mingle with business and post-secondary partners.

This was not the case in 2020 due to the social distancing regulations. So RGV LEAD took the bull by the horns and brought the presenters to the students via webinar sessions. The week-long sessions were informative, interesting, educational, and filled with prizes. Kudos to Eliza Groff, RGV LEAD Program Coordinator, and the EXPO team for organizing this exciting event!
