Eighth grade students from Harnett Central Middle School participated in the first annual career fair on Thursday, October 15, 1998. The faculty at Campbell University Pharmacy School had organized an extremely informative yet fun day. Activities for the day included an opening motivational speaker, guided tours around Campbell University, demonstrations from several of the science departments at Campbell, and the exhibit hall where students got to speak with individuals from various scientific companies. Students as well as teachers felt that the day spent at Campbell will be beneficial in helping students make decisions about class selections in high school as well as career decisions for the future. This was the first that many of the eighth grade teachers had participated in a field trip. During the day and after returning to school, all 13 teachers agreed that this experience was worthwhile and are looking into other science-oriented field trips for the Spring semester.
