LEONARDTOWN, Md. – The Dr. James A. Forrest Career & Technology Center (Forrest Center) will host its twenty-first annual Forrest Center Tech Expo on Thursday, January 21, 2021, 5:00-8:00 p.m.  The entire event will be provided virtually.

The purpose of the Forrest Center Tech Expo is to familiarize students and parents with Career and Technology Education (CTE) career options offered by the St. Mary’s County Public Schools.  This is an opportunity to meet the staff at the Forrest Center and to learn about the 23 completer programs (including the MIFRI Fire and Rescue/EMS program at an off- campus location) and the four elective classes that are offered.  High school counselors will be available to answer questions about career clusters and to assist students in planning their academic program.
