Local districts among those participating in career fair in Portville next week

By Kelsey Boudin, Special to The Salamanca Press

PORTVILLE — In recent years, the annual Manufacturing and S.T.E.M. Fair at Portville High School has given area students a glimpse into potential careers.

The fair will be back April 17 to do more of the same — highlighting local industrial businesses, what they do and how to get there.

But this year, the event will also open its doors for the greater community, said organizer Evelyn Sabina, project coordinator for the local Dream It. Do It. chapter.

“Last year, it was just an amazing exhibition seeing all of these great companies that we have right here in the Olean area,” Sabina said. “It’s just an amazing feeling of pride that all of this is made right here. What a shame for everyone not to be able to see this.”

The high school portion will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and the fair will open again from 3 to 5:30 p.m. for the community. Both sessions will be held in the high school gymnasium.

As of Tuesday, the registered high schools were: Allegany-Limestone, Franklinville, Salamanca, Bolivar-Richburg, Whitesville, Pioneer, Cattaraugus-Little Valley, Olean, Hinsdale, Archbishop Walsh, Portville, Cuba-Rushford, Ellicottville and the Seneca Nation of Indians in New York; and Oswayo Valley, Otto-Eldred, Bradford and Port Allegany in Pennsylvania.
