Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- More than 200 students turn out for Career Exploration Day at Perry Tech in Yakima.

The event allows them to shadow professionals and get a preview of what they could expect to do in their future career.

It also featured a speech by Mac Bledsoe, a motivational speaker and the father of NFL Quarterback Drew Bledsoe.

He talked to students about setting goals for their future and following their dreams.

"The ideas in your head will rule your world and that nobody may put an idea in your head without your permission, without your participation," Bledsoe said.

The Yakima Sunrise Rotary Club organized the event.

Local schools taking part in the career fair included West Valley, Zillah, Davis, and Naches.
