Grateful Bulldogs express thanks

Dear Editor,

Several weeks ago, Bridgeport High school staff organized a career day for students 9-12.

At this event, students had the opportunity to choose from over 55 speakers and careers. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the professionals who took time away from their careers and participated in the event.
