Future Exeter Area Chamber of Commerce members
The Exeter Area Chamber of Commerce is holding a networking event titled, Building Pathways to Careers — Education in the New Hampshire Seacoast this September that will examine varying local and regional efforts and initiatives to support student success after graduation.
Tickets will cost $25 for members of the chamber and $35 for future members. The event will also include a farm to table breakfast from The Farm at Eastman’s Corner in Kensington.
Frank Edelblut, Commissioner of the New Hampshire Department of Education, will be speaking at the event, as well as Superintendent Ryan.
Superintendent Ryan will discuss SAU 16’s various initiatives to help students prepare for their careers as well as college, should they choose to pursue higher education.
During his speech, Superintendent Ryan will highlight the district’s utilization of career pathway initiatives, including programming that allows students to take early college classes at Great Bay Community College and the Seacoast School of Technology.
“We believe that a student’s school experience, whether it is high school or post-secondary, is the most important pathway to preparing for a career,” Superintendent Ryan said. “I’m looking forward to having an engaging conversation with community members about embracing career readiness as the primary purpose of our schools, which includes preparing students to be successful in college, and I encourage anyone with an interest in better understanding or sharing their views on the changing scope of education to attend.”
