The Loving Lamar Initiative, headed by parishioner Larry Lawyer, helped sponsor the Lamar High School in-person job fair on Saturday, April 23.
Workforce Solutions offered one-on-one "Plans After High School" discussions, transition opportunities for students with disabilities, labor market information, and the "Career Corner Show".
BridgeYear, funded by the Loving Lamar Initiative, provided hands-on stations for students to learn more about how to be an automotive technician, electrician, medical lab technician, phlebotomist, plumber, and web developer.
The Loving Lamar ministry is a collective impact initiative led by SJD (and with support from Bethany Christian Church and St. Luke’s Methodist Church) to intentionally live out Jesus’ commandment to love our neighbor through collaborative efforts that support Lamar High School’s students, teachers and administrators, making connections, leveraging relationships, and providing financial and volunteer support.
