The 2019 Cheyenne County Career Day was held on Monday, March 25, at St. Francis High School. Students in grades 6-12 from both Cheyenne County Schools (Cheylin and St. Francis) attended. The students were divided into small groups and assigned to attend different career presentations according to the student's interest. Many local businesses, area post-secondary schools, and career fields were present to deliver information about career choices and preparation.

The Career Day was organized by Janell Potorff and Tammy Grice (with help from others). The day was well organized, and the students seemed to enjoy and benefit from the experience.

This was the second annual Career Day. The 2018 Career Day was held in Bird City.
