Kingwood Elementary holds career day

Preston

Friday was career day for students at Kingwood Elementary in Preston County. 

This event is held at the school every year.  It provides kids with the opportunity to explore different career paths they may want to follow in the future. 

More than 20 professions were represented on Friday, including a zookeeper, firefighter and prison guard.

We just feel that the career day provides our students with goal-setting skills, things that they might want to become, and ideas for how to pursue those things, said Crystal Pell of Kingwood Elementary. 

A majority of the volunteers were individuals employed locally.
