Students Learn About Diverse Careers

College and Career Day encourages Walter Reed students to diverse jobs.

Ian Bambic talked about being a chef, Adina Barco talked about making jewelry. Kimberly Jones Harris discussed being a detective.

Wednesday at Walter Reed Middle School, about 50 speakers visited classes to discuss what they do and show demonstrations to the students.

TV News Anchor Sibilia Vargas was there, as well as massage therapist Chelsea Taylor and Superior Court Judge Michael J. Convey, who brought a wig in to show what they wear in British courts.

"This is always a special day for the students because they can see many different opportunities for the future," said Principal Donna Tobin. "We are always grateful that so many great people from the community come in."

Students learned about aerospace engineering, medical professions, the Cartoon Network producer and casting director. They heard from actors, artists, directors and musicians.

"Our students have greatly benefited from past presentations by learning about various career options and postsecondary opportunities.

Dr. Clyde Pitts, a veteranarian, brought in a parrot to show the students (see video.)

Studio City Patch gave lectures here for the third year in a row and showed students how stories get posted, how to blog themselves and how stories are covered.

Such a good idea...hope that more school do this. Back In The Day we never had such information and it would have been so helpful to many students.
