Southport Middle School had its first Career Day event on Thursday, October 8, 2015. Volunteers throughout the community came to present their careers to our 7th and 8th grade students. Presentations were job-fair style and volunteers each had a designated table or assigned area where they spoke about their area of expertise. Students were able to walk through and view each of the displays. They were given advice and learned what educational training and personal skills are necessary in each field, and what a typical day is like through games and presentations.
Picture: Students look on as pilot Tony Richardson explains his background, education, and his daily life in this career. This event was just one of the exciting activities planned for Career Week in order to prepare students to be college bound and career ready.
