Central Elementary Students Examine Careers

Central Elementary 3rd grader Carter Trowbridge looks at tools that mechanic Bobby Bare brought to show during Career Day at the school.

“What do you want to be when you grow up?” is often asked of students.

Central Elementary School Counselor Jenna Dompa hoped she could help students spark an interest in a profession by putting together the annual Career Day.

Students had the opportunity to explore different career paths as they rotated through 25 different vocation booths.  At each station students were able to ask questions, see demonstrations and determine their level of interest in the occupation.

A nurse, welder, landscaper, surgical technologist, carpenter, correctional officer, city councilwoman, TV reporter along with many other professions were represented.
