Career Day held at Newark Middle School
- Updated: March 22, 2012
The third annual Career Day for seventh graders was held March 7 at Newark Middle School.
NMS Career Day allows students to attend sessions on four different professions. Before the event, students, with the help of their school counselors, choose which professions they would like to learn more about. And then they are given schedules for the day.
The NMS Career Day is a collaborative effort with the Newark Wayne Community Hospital, the Newark Police Department and local businesses. Professionals participate and share knowledge of their field and the educational requirements necessary to obtain such a position.
This year presenters covered 10 career choices including a wide range from the medical field; law enforcement, animal science, environmental conservation, welding and more.
Career Day Coordinator Teresa Prinzi, who is the NMS Assistant Principal, said the event would not be possible without the help of Lisa Eakins, seventh grade social studies teacher, school counselors Tracy Altman and Matt May and the entire seventh grade staff.
The Career Day event for seventh graders is the second in a three-year progression aimed at helping students decide on a career path. In sixth grade, students learn about setting goals and in eighth grade, they visit a college.
