JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The Nettleton Class of 2015 got a peek into the future today, with jobs in the medical fields to be specific.

Working with NEA Baptist Clinic, the school provided an opportunity for 8th graders to visit with professionals in both the clinical and non clinical environments. Workers from the labs, X-Ray, dental professionals, chiropractic, and more, all had tables set up at the school.

Outside Medic One had a rig on display and an Air-Evac Helicopter dropped in for the occasion.

It will be a few years until these students are ready to make career choices, Nancy Gribble the Nettleton Wellness Coordinator says it's never too early to get ready for the future. Gribble, "Well we feel they need to be considering a career at a younger age now. So they can choose classes that they can take throughout high school that can help them with this career."
