Indian Lake High School senior Aubrey Johnson is making inroads for her future. She applied for jobs, interviewed with potential employers and even signed up to receive emails when Honda of America Manufacturing has new job postings during the third annual Logan County Career Expo Friday at Indian Lake High School.

“I’m thinking about going into production right away, like Honda through Adecco, so I can make good money, rise up and go on and get my degree,” the high school senior said.
