PIHS is hosting its 2nd annual career & job fair on January 28, 2019 during the school day. 
We are looking for a variety of reps--military, trades, certifications, 2- and 4-year college and beyond--to meet the interests of all students. Last year 1/2 of our reps had a connection to Pine Island as residents or business owners, alumni, parents, or other relatives of staff or students. We hope to increase that number this year because who better to inspire our student body?
