Harry McKillop Elementary welcomed 30 professionals Thursday morning for Career Day. Law enforcement officers, nurses, lawyers, school administrators, and city officials were some of the many professions represented.
Reuben Mankin, a Texas Ranger for the Texas Department of Public Safety, opened Career Day with a presentation in the school gym where he recalled key lessons he learned in school that he uses in his daily work. Mankin shared the importance of reading, communication, respect, and understanding different cultures.
Following Mankin’s presentation, students led each Career Day visitor to two assigned classrooms to talk about their own profession.
