Louise Durham Held Career Day

Louise Durham Elementary held a Career Day on May 4th.  The students had a fun-filled day as they rotated through 11 different presentations.  While learning about these various careers, Kindergarten through second grade students got to see different equipment in action, sit in an ambulance, climb in an AR National Guard transport vehicle, touch furs and deer antlers, taste cupcakes and raspberries, see REA linemen in action, watch an artist create designs on a computer, and ask lots and lots of questions.  At this age, the point of a Career Day is to getting children to think about what they like to do and how they can use that in a job someday—to get them to dream.  We would like to thank the following participants that made our day such a success:

Marianne Kleinot and her students from RMCC Culinary Class

Jared McCormick, Outreach Coordinator at RMCC

Dee Dee Alston- Holly Springs Homestead

Lauren Frost, Polk County Extension

Melissa Phillips, Queen Wilhelmina

James Schnell, AR National Guard

Joe Quinn, Steven Stout, & John Logan, Mena Police Department

Charles Hankins & Steve Egger, Mena Fire Department

Jeremy & Ameda Nowlin – Truly Epic/Office Ink Designs

Brittany Strong, John Dodd, Sam Cavelli, & Wayne Armstrong from Southwest EMS

Festus Wimberly, Robert Todd & Jason Harris, Rich Mountain Electric
