On Thursday morning, students at Memorial Intermediate were visited by local businesses and community members for an annual career fair.

Local businesses such as the Alice Police Department, Border Patrol, Jim Wells County District Attorney's Office, DentaQuest and more set up booths to answer questions and provide insight to their careers. They also provided students with brochures, stickers and pencils.

Career fairs provide students the opportunity to ask questions in an attempt to understand the education and work needed for the different jobs available.
