Junior High Career Fair for Girls Held

     Zonta Club of Fort Smith  sponsored its annual career fair for girls at Darby Junior High on Friday, May 15.  Over fifty area women from all professions set up stations.  The junior high girls had the opportunity to learn about many different careers available to them and to see that girls and women are NOT limited in their choices.  Zonta Club of Fort Smith also shared an advocacy concern with the girls by having a table devoted to Say No to Violence Against Women.  The girls and women presenters were given orange ribbons to wear the 25th of each month and the girls signed posters to remember the Nigerian girls and ask that we “Bring Back Our Girls.”
