“It Starts Now’’ was the theme of the 10th Annual Eighth Grade Career Discovery Day at Southeastern Oklahoma State University.
Over 600 eighth grade students from Bryan County schools attended the event Thursday, which was sponsored by Southeastern Oklahoma State University and the Southern Workforce Board.
Eighth grade students had the chance to explore career fields and other opportunities for their futures. Each student participated in breakout sessions that explored the specifics, work responsibilities, and requirements/qualifications for different occupations from over 30 various career fields.
Among the fields represented were the arts, oil/gas, healthcare, architect-engineering, law enforcement, fire-EMT, military, science, aviation, manufacturing, education, and legal.
Students from Calera, Legacy Christian School, Caddo, Boswell, Silo, Rock Creek, Achille, Durant, Bennington and Colbert attended the event. Students attended breakout sessions to learn about three specific career areas which they selected based on a career assessment they completed earlier in the academic year.
