SANTA CLARITA - Dozens of parents and students interested in learning more about educational programs and job opportunities gathered in the Hyatt Regency Valencia for the Choices in Education Expo Saturday.

More than 25 exhibitors — including the Castaic Lake Water Agency, College of the Canyons, Castaic Union School District, Newhall School District, Saugus Union School District, Sulphur Springs School District and William S. Hart Union School District — presented attendees information on how to further their education or secure a job in the field.

“We’re happy to be here to share with the families all the great things happening at our schools, like great opportunities for academics, extracurricular activities and special programs,” said Hart district spokeswoman Gail Pinsker.

The expo also featured a variety of presentations with speakers teaching parents and students all about financial resources, selecting education options, submitting college applications and more.

“There are so many options, and all the options have choices,” said Gary Buterbaugh, owner of High Impact Event Resources, an event management company, and producer of the event. “The competition for advance education slots is intense.

“The cost of education is tremendous, and I think a show like this will help people sort through all the choices and find out how to locate the funds,” he said.

Although this was the first time the event was put on, Buterbaugh said he is looking to bring the event back sometime next year.

“I feel that education today, whether you’re making decisions for yourself or your family, it’s a challenge,” Buterbaugh said. “That’s why we’re putting this show on, to connect all of the education community in Santa Clarita with the public.”
