Professionals from Colorado’s oil and gas industry spoke to the students in the auditorium of East High School on Wednesday.

One student said the speakers gave her advice she won’t forget.

“If you love it, if you love your job or you want to do anything that you’re interested in, go for it. Don’t worry about any of the haters out there or, like, any negative people just go for it,” said Dhyonna January, a freshman.

CareerConnect visits happen eight times throughout the school year.
