We would like to thank our sponsors, the City of Issaquah, the Issaquah Schools Foundation, and the Port of Seattle, and our amazing Education Committee for their commitment and support for this program. In addition to our sponsors, this event could not have happened without the business and community leaders who volunteered their time and presented during the event.


Great Careers allows interested students in grades 9-12 to learn about some of the many careers that can be pursued with a certification or two-year degree.Students were able to attend 3 different 30-minute career sessions where they heard from industry professionals and an Expo with representatives from local higher education and training programs.
