Career Day inspires minds at Pocahontas Junior High School

POCAHONTAS, AR (KAIT) - It was a scene reminiscent of the Village People - people from completely different walks of life coming together for one purpose: to show the young minds of Pocahontas what career options were out there and what each one actually meant.

The yearly event was held Friday, March 13th, but it was anything but unlucky for the young students as everything from an Arkansas Game & Fish officer a K-9 police officer to bank executives showed up to share knowledge of not only what they did, but how to get into their profession.

Even the media was represented by Pocahontas Star Herald reporter Dalton Sullivan and Region 8 News Web Content/Assignments Editor Stan Morris.

The event was organized by the Junior High LINK chapter. LINK President Olivia Futrell said the event not only helped her to further decide a possible future career, but helped her fellow students as well.

PJHS Counselor Taftnee Cox helped organize the event and plans to continue it every year.
