Thomas Nelson Community College Workforce Development, in partnership with the Science, Engineering and Technology Division, is hosting the STEM Opportunity Job Fair on March 13, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Moore Hall Espada Room on the Hampton Campus.
Thomas Nelson is connecting Hampton Roads employers in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) industries directly with Thomas Nelson students and members of the community.
Representatives from more than a dozen of the region’s top manufacturing, finance and other STEM industries will be present, including Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, American Chemical Society, Hampton Roads Sanitation District, NASA, Newport News Shipbuilding and more.
“The goal of this STEM Opportunity Fair is to expose our students to employers in the area and to allow employers to see that we have very talented students in STEM at Thomas Nelson,” said Riham Mahfouz, assistant professor and chair of the Department of Chemistry. “Work experiences such as internships are invaluable in increasing a graduate’s chances of landing a great job and this fair will help provide those opportunities for our students.”
Career fair attendees are encouraged to dress professionally and bring copies of their resumes as some employers will conduct on-site interviews.

Thomas Nelson Community College will test its emergency notification procedures on Tuesday, March 11 during a statewide tornado drill at 9:45 a.m. The Virginia Department of Emergency Management (VDEM) and the National Weather Service sponsor the drill to help people prepare for tornado season. Sixty-seven tornadoes have struck Virginia in the last three years, killing 10 people and injuring more than 100.
Thomas Nelson Police Chief Kelvin Maxwell said the College will test all components of its emergency notification process during the drill including campus-wide e-mail, internet homepage alerts and e2Campus. Used by roughly 650 campuses nationwide, e2Campus is a web-based unified emergency notification system that enables the transmission of instant alerts to cell phones, land lines and/or several other communications devices.
Maxwell said VDEM advises that becoming familiar with tornado basics is critical to surviving such conditions. A tornado watch means that conditions are favorable for a tornado and that tornadoes are possible. A tornado warning means that a tornado has been sighted or has been indicated by National Weather Service Doppler radar as headed to a particular site. For details and safety tips, visit the VDEM website at www.vaemergency.com.
