Andy Nulman, president of Airborne Entertainment, was the keynote speaker at the opening ceremonies of the seventh annual EMSB Career Fair, October 24 to 26 at St. Pius X Adult Centre in Ahuntsic. More than 3,000 Secondary IV and V students were in attendance over the three days. Mr. Nulman, who attended Gardenview and LaurenHill (then known as Sir Winston Churchill High as a youth), kicked things off and then met with students in the kiosk area. This year's theme was "Dare to Dream". The event was held in the memory of Anastasia De Sousa, who was tragically killed in the Dawson College shooting. She was a St. Pius X graduate. The Student Services and Adult Education and Vocational Services Departments of the EMSB coordinated this program. Chair Lizette Gilday, the guidance counsellor at St. Laurent Adult Centre, noted that the main objective of the Career Fair is to provide Secondary V and senior adult education students with an in-depth exposure to the various educational opportunities available to them.
