Shawnee School District is giving kids a more in depth look at possible future careers.

Shawnee Middle School hosted a career fair for grades six through eight on Thursday. The event features nearly 20 area professionals, ranging from medical, to first responders to logistics, discussing their careers, what they entail, and how they got where they are. Students were able to visit five different career booths that matched their personal interests. The kids then got to ask questions and filled out questionnaires for each station they visited. The organizers of the event hope that exposing the kids to career options at a young age will help prepare them for the future.

"We just feel it's really important we need to give these kids something to look forward to in their future, give them you know to start thinking about what it's going to be like after high school. We just want kids to realize that there is a career out there for everyone and it's not to early to start thinking about how their interests and skills might align with a future career," commented Erica Schmiedebusch.

It's an event that students were very excited about and it's one that teachers and faculty plan to continue hosting year after year.
