POTEAU–Carl Albert State College fine arts Instructor Shawna Blake served as one of the motivational guest speakers at the Transition Expo at the Fort Smith, Arkansas Convention Center on Tuesday.
When Blake is not teaching, she is a standup comedian, therefore she felt right at home being on stage at the Expo.
Referred to as the Dream Career Summit, the expo served as the largest education and career expo in Arkansas. Its purpose was to showcase current and future talent pools to dynamic colleges, universities, education providers, employers and service organizations.
Workshops were held throughout the day for attendees along with the opportunity to learn important information from the guest speakers. The primary goal of the speakers was to help those attending overcome personal obstacles and pursue their dreams.
“I was thrilled to have the opportunity to speak to high school students about some of the things I love: Being a comedian, being an educator and making mistakes,” said Blake. “I also enjoyed representing CASC and having the opportunity to talk with potential students about the perks of making Carl Albert State College their future home.”
