It is never too early for students in middle school to start thinking and even prepare for their future. Jason Miller, Elsberry Middle School Principal, along with Tavia McIntyre, English teacher and Summer Hagemeier, Counselor coordinated two events for eighth grade students last week to help them think about their future after high school.
The first activity last Wednesday involved each student having an interview with a professional from the community. McIntyre worked with the students in class on resumes, self presentation and skills during an interview. Professionals from the community assisting with interviews were: Kara Carmi, Bank of Lincoln County; Pastor Flyod Gudde, United Methodist Church; Melissa and Matt Jones, Channel Seed; Sarah Hunt, Joseph R. Palmer Family Memorial Librarian; Pastor Sam Byers, Elsberry First Baptist Church and Michelle Young, Preferred Family Healthcare.
A field trip on Friday was the second opportunity for students to think about their future as they traveled to Ranken Technical School, Pike/Lincoln Tech School and St. Charles Community College.
