HUNTINGTON, WV -

Approximately 900 students from the tristate took part in the area's first regional Career and Technical Education Expo in Huntington, WV. 

Students from Wayne, Cabell, Mason and Lincoln counties were there as well as students from Lawrence County, Ohio. Tuesday's event at the Big Sandy Superstore Arena was a chance for students to meet with employers and representatives from more than 50 institutions. Employers, educational institutions, unions, military branches and community organizations. 

Bill Rosenberger, Communications Coordinator for Wayne County Schools, said the opportunities are not out of our region. 

"These are jobs that are here, they're here now, they pay well and these folks in here today are really getting a shot at great job opportunities," Rosenberger said. 

Rosenberger added some of the unions helped pay for the event because they have a generation of laborers ready to retire and they are going to need more bricklayers, welders, painters and the like.
