Kindergarten through fifth grade got the opportunity to hear presentations by members of the community about different careers at Joseph Martin Elementary’s Career Day Feb. 22.

JME’s school counselor Robin Zorn has coordinated and hosted the event for almost four years, she said. Months beforehand, Zorn sends out invitations to those in the community asking for volunteers to participate.

“Participants set up in the gym,” Zorn said. “There will be the fire department, Liberty County EMS, Coastal Electric Cooperative, Liberty County deputies and other representatives. There will be a variety of careers presented.”

Students in each grade level were given around 25 to 30 minutes to go around and visit all of the participants. Students were also divided into small groups, and escorted around the gym by teachers, staff and volunteer Beta Club students from Bradwell Institute.

Lyman Hall Elementary School students in kindergarten through fifth grade also participated in a Career Day last Friday. Law enforcement and businesses from the community made presentations to show them a multitude of career options.
