Second annual career day at Foster Elementary

More than a dozen careers were represented by attendees at the second annual Career Day at Foster Elementary recently. Attending the event were engineers, police officers, a sheriff, an attorney, a counselor, insurance agents, dental representatives, and even a snake-handler from Texas Snakes.

Wearing their uniforms, participants rotated to multiple classrooms throughout the school, explaining their various careers to students and explaining the kinds of knowledge and skills students need to be successful in life after graduation.  They answered the students’ questions and handed out prizes and other items.

“This was a great opportunity for our students to actually meet and talk with representatives of a wide variety of careers available to them,” said Foster Principal Eric Tingle.
