    Career treks are career-related field trips organized through my office.  They
    are supervised trips which take place during the school day - most are only a
    few hours. Due to limited space for these field trips, spots are filled on a first
    come, first served basis, with priority given to juniors and seniors. Please stop
    by and see me if you have a certain career you are interested in exploring.

    The Career Trek program is made possible through a partnership/grant funded by
    the Northwest Educational Council for Student Success (NECSS)
    http://necsspartnership.com. Their mission is to develop programs with partners
    (like D220) that inspire postsecondary education and career readiness as a life goal. 
    Through this partnership BHS students are invited to attend Career Nights hosted
    by other local high schools. These Career Nights are advertised and will show up
    on this website.
