Girls Add Their Voices, Zonta Club of Fort Smith calls for Return of the Nigerian Schoolgirls

On May 15, solidarity day in Africa, junior high girls at the career fair sponsored by Zonta Club of Fort Smith added their names to those calling for the return of the Nigerian schoolgirls.

The career fair is an annual project of Zonta Club of Fort Smith, alternating between two local junior high schools. At this year’s fair, over 50 careers were represented by area women. As one presenter expressed, the career fair is not so much about the individual presenters as much as about the girls seeing a whole world of opportunities to them if they will stay in school and make good choices. In hosting this career fair, Zonta Club of Fort Smith provides service and advocacy for education. This year, members were able to include a specific advocacy action for the girls to take, as well. They were ready to raise their voices!
