Career perspective

by A.J. Hakim

December 05, 2013

Eighth graders at Pierce Middle School recently participated in a Career Day, in which students ventured classroom to classroom to hear presentations from professionals representing a multitude of careers.

In attendance were representatives from Homeland Security, Secret Service, the FBI, broadcast journalism, nursing, art, law enforcement and other careers.

The idea of Career Day, which started at Pierce nearly 20 years ago, is for students to start exploring their current interests and strengths and relating those into possible career choices.
