"Cool at School" Career Day

LAS VEGAS, NV - Students eye their occupational futures, in a "What's Cool at School" Career Day at Frias Elementary, where they were given an opportunity to learn about what could be a future professional path.

A collection of career possibilities was featured. A Veterinarian talked about the rewards of helping animals, NDOT addressed improving and finishing freeways, and Hot 97.5 hosted a dance party!

There were also unconventional career options.....from a balloon artist, to Blue Man Group, to famous BMX Rider T.J. Lavin, who imparted the message that every student has a superpower, and it's about finding their passion.

Students listened, questioned and considered if they were learning about what they might want to do.

8 News Now was back on campus to impart the in's and out's of broadcast journalism. I talked about the job of News Anchor, with my colleague Bill Roe, who demonstrated the role of a Photojournalist; and we turned the classroom into a news studio with students taking on the roles of reporters and anchors!
