Students at Adair County Primary Center learned about a wide variety of jobs and careers Tuesday at the school's Career Day, which featured several guests from both Adair County High School and the community.


"It's a great opportunity for kids to learn about what they'd like to pursue when they grow up," says ACPC Principal Patty Jones. "Dressing up is probably the students' favorite part - it gives them a chance to express themselves, and we've had a lot of them come dressed as their parents' professions."

There were four booths set up - two in the gymnasium, and two outside - for each class to visit. ACHS students ran two of the booths: The FFA booth, where students learned about farming and agriculture, and the health sciences booth, which examined the healthcare industry and the many jobs available in the field. The other two presenters were Adair EMS, whose workers talked about their important, fast-paced work in emergency response, and Dana King with Red Barn Veterinary Services, who discussed professions dealing with animal care and small business.

ACPC counselor Kim Barnett, who helped organize the event, says Career Day is a chance for kids to become acquainted with new and different career options they might not have been aware of before. "They're so young, so it's important to introduce them to all the different avenues available," Barnett explains. "They might know a little bit about a job, but this is an opportunity to learn more in-depth about a career."

Family Resource Center coordinator Paula Garrison wishes to thank the many people who helped make Career day at ACPC a rousing success. "We would like to thank both the high school students and community volunteers who took time out of their schedules and shared their valuable knowledge with all ACPC students," Garrison says. "We wouldn't be able to do this without them."
