Last week Guadalupe School charter students enjoyed one of our most fun annual traditions - Career Day! Each grade gets visited throughout the day by several community members who work in various fields. This year the presenters were from especially diverse industries. Women and men came to talk about their jobs as social workers, graphic designers, biochemists, software engineers, fashion designers, architects, dancers, and more!
Among the presenters were two members of Guadalupe School's Board of Directors, Alex Reyna and Steve Downing. Alex spoke about the importance of money and managing finances, and his career at Goldman Sach's. Steve Downing, who works at Telemundo Utah, talked to the kids about how the news gets produced. His presentation was especially cool, because many of our students and their families tune into Telemundo to get the news in Spanish!
Guadalupe School thanks its social work interns, Sarah Anderson and Jenny Hallisey, for coordinating Career Day this year. This event is of significant value to our organization because our mission is to transform lives through education. Transforming lives means allowing people young and old alike to see their potential, set goals for their future, and achieve those goals through academic success. Career Day allows Guadalupe students to interact with many examples of who they can become and what they can aspire to. Thanks to all of those who shared their knowledge and experiences on this special day, and helped inspire a rising generation of leaders!
