(BOYNTON BEACH, Fla.)- Junior Achievement of the Palm Beaches & Treasure Coast (JAPBTC) collaborated with education professionals to organize a Career Exploration Fair at Crosspointe Elementary School in Boynton Beach, Fla. 

Passionate career speakers like Erica Eggerman, Joseph "JB" Bensmihen, and representatives from The City of Boynton Beach Fire Rescue were among the guest speakers who dedicated their time to inspire and educate the students.

"These speakers generously shared their career journeys, shedding light on their diverse and exciting paths," said Erica Henn, Director of Elementary Programs at JAPBTC. "It's all about empowering our students with the knowledge of the endless possibilities awaiting them."

These professionals brought their stories to life, highlighting the twists and turns, challenges, and triumphs of their respective careers. The students were not only informed about potential career paths but also encouraged to dream big and reach for the stars.

"Let's continue to ignite curiosity and fuel ambition," said Henn.
