Afternoon, all.

We had this request through from the Adams County Career Fair folks, asking
whether we might be interested in attending and hosting a table at a career
fair for 5,700 8th-graders to talk about careers in the geo- and related
sciences. See below for the request, for 8am-noon on November 15th, in
north Denver. Lunch is included. If anyone would like to go, please let me
know by next Friday October 21st and I'll work with the organizers to get
it set up.

Thanks all!

Hi Carolyn,

My is Lora Oliver and I am with the Adams County Education Consortium,
which partners with businesses and schools in the community to encourage
skills readiness and career exploration for Adams County Students. I wanted
to reach out to you to see if NCAR would be interested in being a table
sponsor at our upcoming event -- the Adams County Commissioners’ Career
Expo--which will be held on November 15, 2016 at the Denver Merchandise

 The Career Expo annually hosts more than 5,500 8th grade students. It is
the model for the Denver, Douglas and Jefferson County, Colorado programs
and other expo events out of state. Over its history, more than 55,000
Adams County students have attended the event.

Uncovering a career goal can be a critical factor in students persevering
in school.  Research suggest that if students find a career pathway, if
they have some way to see themselves in the future, they’re 30% more likely
to graduate from high school.

 As careers such as those at NCAR are important and exciting pathways for
students to consider, we’d love for you  to partner with us to support this
important event and gain more visibility in front of the area’s business
and student communities.  I’ve attached more information on the event and
sponsorship opportunities.

 Please let me know if there are any questions I might be able to answer.
Thanks for your consideration!
