Students from Mid-East were recently able to showcase their career-tech programs at a Career Day held at Caldwell Elementary School. The event was held for over 275 fourth through seventh grade students. Mid-East programs featured during the day included Business and Finance; Criminal Justice; Dental Assisting; Multi-Skilled Health Technician; Diesel Technology; Robotics, Automation and Design; Power Line; Precision Machining; Vet Assisting and Animal Care; and Welding. Elementary students rotated to presenters where they learned about education requirements, tools, job outlook, job environment and more for each career field. The Career Day was coordinated by Robin McQuaid from Mid-East and Lori Miller who is a Career Liaison with Mid-East and teacher at Caldwell Elementary.

Students heard about various aspects of each of the ten career stations and had the opportunity interact with Mid-East presenters trying out their equipment and asking questions.
