Middle School Students Learn from Professionals

NHA

6/5/2017

River City Scholar Student Council put together the Second Annual River City Career Day on May 25 with several professionals from the community.

Beginning at 8:30 a.m., 17 different professionals spoke to middle school classes about how they chose their profession, what a typical day looks like, and answered questions.

Each speaker held a short activity that represented their profession.

Leon Hendrix, a weekend anchor at Wood TV 8 in Grand Rapids, Mich., had students read from his laptop as if it was a teleprompter. The students learned how difficult it was to read and make it interesting at the same time.

Some of the professionals included an architect, an attorney,  a police sergeant,  an author, a comedian, a GVSU professor, a salon owner and a politician.

The students did a great job organizing the event!​
