8th graders from Morris Upchurch Middle School attended the LEAP Expo on Friday, September 13th at the Texarkana TX Convention Center.  The Learning Endorsements and Professions (LEAP) Youth Career Expo is designed to provide career information to 8th grade students in Northeast Texas.  Eighth graders are now asked to select an endorsement during the spring semester, prior to starting high school. There are 5 endorsements: Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), Business and Industry, Public Services, Arts and Humanities, and Multidisciplinary.  The LEAP Youth Career Expo invites local employers and training organizations to provide professional insight and a "hands on" look at various career options in the local job market. Students were able to visit with professionals from over 100 different career paths and gain insight into what these career choices actually require.  Becky Russell who is the Academic and Guidance Counselor at MUMS explained that, “The LEAP Expo is an opportunity for our 8th grade students to begin thinking about their futures and what interests they may have.  It allows them to look at different career fields, ask questions and gain knowledge. I am happy MUMS has been invited to attend for the second year in a row.”
