HIGHLAND, AR (KAIT) -

Seniors at Highland High School got a dose of adulthood on Friday afternoon.

Students picked a career that interested them and then visited different stations set up for the event.

The stations included information about housing, cars, insurance, utility prices, and more.

They had to figure out how much they made in their "job" and then what they could afford.

Students who participated in the event said it was eye-opening and helped them better prepare to live on their own.

The event was hosted by the Highland FBLA, First Community Bank, and Ozarka College.
