DANVILLE — Getting a jump start on career goals and aspirations is critical for young people and Danville Junior High School provided that opportunity to students Monday during Career Day.

The event spanned the entire school day for all Junior High School students on a rotation basis, and included examples of health technology fields, automotive technologies, civil servants, broadcast news and even musicians and authors.

“We’re trying to give the students a more hands-on approach this year,” explained event coordinator Jennifer Ferenbaugh. “We have a Nurse with IV ports, WNZR is here with a green screen and a teleprompter for broadcasting with scripts I sent them last week, welding and automotive, technology with 3D printing, and KSAAT is here on the track with the indirect fire drills and the kids will put on the heavy vests they wear and run around the track with them.”
