Fox Meadow Elementary hosts career day presentations

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Students in one Region 8 school got a hands on look at different career possibilities Tuesday.

Fox Meadow Elementary School in Jonesboro had their career day.

Professionals from a variety of fields took time out of their day to give the students an idea of what different jobs look like.

Tommy Fitzgerald with the Jonesboro Police Department said events like this are a great idea.

“We just talked about kids are young and impressionable,” Fitzgerald said. “So, we just wanted them to know you don't have to fear us. We're here to help them. They see us out in the community it's okay to come up and talk to us. We want them to learn gun safety, some of the stuff. Like if they see a gun lying around the house don't touch it. Get an adult or call us.”

440 students listened to 15 presenters during the event.
