MMS Students Explore Careers During Personal Learning DayDuring Mason City Schools Personal Learning Day on November 20, over 150 Mason Middle School Students participated in four separate Junior Achievement Career Exploration opportunities.

 

Students explored careers with the City of Mason's Water Reclamation Plant and Engineering department, Hilliandale Communities / Chesterwood Village, Pioneer Cladding and Glazing Systems - Green Technologies, and UC West Chester Hospital.

 

"Junior Achievement Job Exploration is an opportunity for students to explore jobs and careers in a workplace environment during a one-time visit to a host site company," shared District Manager for Junior Achievement, Carol Lucio. "The ability for students to see the workplace, ask questions of employees/VPs/CEO's/Owners and others, and engaging in hands-on learning about the work of the business enables students to make important school-to-work connections. It's an invaluable learning experience."
