Boyd sophomore Thai Vongpathoum stopped by to visit with a representative of West Texas A&M Thursday night to get some information as he’s already making plans for after high school.

“I’m trying to get an early start and learn more about colleges,” Vongpathoum said. “I don’t want to wait and stress about it.”

Vongpathoum, who wants to be a behaviorist and pursue a career in criminal justice, was one of several students weighing future options during the second Beyond Boyd Expo at Boyd High School.

The event included representatives from several colleges and military branches, local business owners, as well as Boyd High School faculty.

“It’s a chance for students and parents to see about life after high school,” said Boyd High School Principal Susan Foster. “They can visit with different business owners about what is needed and see military and college recruiters. Younger students can also talk with our staff to make sure they are taking all the right classes.”

Different student organizations and clubs also took part, hoping to recruit new members. Sterling Taylor drove a robot around the cafeteria Thursday to draw attention to the robotics team.

“We want to get younger members interested to go to our competitions and involved in building and coding with the robots,” Taylor said.
