Sophomore Isaiah Cervantez, right, tries his hand at using Eastern New Mexico University’s welding simulator at Roswell High School’s career fair on Thursday. Cervantez, 16, said he has always been interested in welding as a career, especially underwater welding, and he plans to go to college to study it. Welding instructor Dusty Baker, left, said he attended the event to recruit students for the rolling program, which can start with students knowing nothing about welding, but after going through the program they will be employable anywhere within three months. RHS counselor Anna Curtis (not pictured) said the gym was packed as the fair highlighted career pathways, including those to be offered next year such as agriculture, auto, health science, military, criminal justice and protective services. Curtis said these options offer relevance for students when it comes to their classes and career paths, as they consider options to pursue vocational/technical programs or higher education.
