The WS/FCS Virtual Career and College Fair premiered on Wednesday, December 9th, 2020. Students can hear from various business representatives about career pathway opportunities in the Piedmont Triad and surrounding areas. College and University representatives provide information about the admissions process and academic programs offered. There is also military branch information and additional career related resources for writing resumes, preparing for a college, scholarship or job interview, and help to find the right career pathway for the undecided student.

HELLO! My name is Kim Hayes and I serve as the Career Development Coordinator (CDC) at West Forsyth. I am happy to help you determine and attain your career goals, whether they are as immediate as finding a job shadowing opportunity or as far reaching as helping you determine what you would like to do after high school or even after college. I am here to help.
This is my 20th year in public education working for the Career and Technical Education (CTE) department but only my 3rd year at West Forsyth, my alma mater. I'm a graduate of Appalachian State University and a mother to three wonderful boys. My husband also works in public education serving as a Principal in the Davidson County Schools System. For several years I worked in the business industry prior to transitioning into Business and Marketing Education as a classroom teacher, then a Program Specialist and now a CDC. My experience in both the business sector and public education allow me to provide valuable career insight to the students of West Forsyth. I look forward to serving you.
