On Friday, December 5, 2014, kindergarten through fifth grade students at T. S. Cooley Elementary Magnet School participated in career day. Parents, grandparents, and community leaders shared information about their careers with the students. Several careers included a chemical engineer from Citgo, a trophy business owner, a registered nurse, a personal trainer, an insurance agent, a plant process operator, and a helicopter pilot. Annually, parents, grandparents, and community leaders volunteer to teach our students about their careers to aid in students’ career exploration. Click on READ FULL STORY for more photos.
