2012 Recap:
9th Annual FEA Student Gathering

The 2012 FEA Student Gathering brought together high school students from all across Alaska for a fun and educational event focused on the education profession. Roughly 100 students gathered together in Fairbanks to participate in the event which focused on education careers, student leadership, college readiness, technology and mathematics in schools, distance learning, and more! Selected youth leaders led the event and gained leadership skills as they facilitated discussions, emceed the conference, and led the team building games. Students were welcomed to the University of Alaska Fairbanks by Chancellor Rogers. Their day on campus included a visit to Rural Student Services, the School of Education department, and a tour with the admission's Inside Out program. The Student Gathering concluded with a visit to the Museum of the North and a student dance! The 2013 Student Gathering will be held in Anchorage next April.
