Career Day
What do you want to be when you grow up?
Seventh graders from Indian Lake, Bellefontaine, Ben Logan, West Liberty and host Riverside Schools all had the opportunity recently to talk with representatives from dozens of different professions working right here in Logan County.
Youth Liaison Karen Sorreles from the Midwest Regional Educational Service Center organized the fourth annual Logan County Career Day in conjunction with the Logan County Area Chamber of Commerce. Extensive career exploration is now an important part of the required curriculum for middle school students.
Sorreles says the goal of Career Day is for students to get hands-on exposure to well-known occupations, including many positions they may not have heard about before.
Students had the chance to ask questions and get to know local people working in the areas of pharmacy, animal training, construction, engineering, law enforcement, firefighting, automotive, agriculture, cosmetology, broadcasting, sports therapy, various medical fields and much more. Students from Indian Lake Middle School were assigned to focus on at least seven different areas of interest. Students then interviewed the representatives, asking about typical work days, required education and what is enjoyable about the job.
