Hanford-Dole Elementary recently held a career day for its fourth- and fifth-grade students.

The Career Day presenters were Billy Stiles, construction technology from Chandler Concrete; Lindsay Eagle, nurse and health-care professional from Wake Med Hospital; Dustin Wilson, management from Chick-fil-A; Adam Shepherd, customer service from Fibrant Technology; Fran Simpson, teacher, counselor and Communities In Schools site coordinator from Hanford-Dole; and Lt. J. Eagle, Lt. J.D. Smit, and C. Andrews, firefighters from the East Spencer Fire Department.

Sabrina Eagle, school counselor, and Fran Simpson, Communities In Schools site coordinator, organized the event to give students the opportunity to learn about various jobs in the community, the education needed for these jobs and the importance of staying in school and making good grades.

While presenters rotated to each fourth- and fifth-grade classroom, the students took notes on the jobs discussed and the education level, skills and equipment needed for the various jobs. The students even had to decide if he or she would like to do any of the jobs in the future.

Hanford-Dole’s vision statement is to nurture lifelong learners prepared and empowered to embrace the possibilities and responsibilities of their future, including job opportunities.
