MEMPHIS, TN -
(WMC) - Magnolia Elementary school hosted a job fair to help students' parents find work.

Several businesses from around the Memphis area set up booths, took resumes, and interviewed prospective employees.

School leaders say they held the job fair because so many parents are out of work.

"We believe that in order for our children to achieve success, the parents have to achieve success as well," said Patricia Lee, a family service specialist at Magnolia Elementary.

Parents said they're thankful that the school is looking out for them and their children. 

"I have faith in the lord and have faith in the my past abilities. Knowing I've been in administration for over 20 years, I still think I'm pretty viable," said one parent at Monday's job fair.
