Ross Collins Career Center students at Meridian High School got a lesson on working in the real world Wednesday.
Students heard from four guest speakers who discussed their careers and offered suggestions for how the high school students can achieve their goals in whatever career field they choose.
Speakers discussed several issues including the importance of hard work and not giving up.
"Hopefully it will be a little pep talk," said Nelda Davidson, marketing instructor. "Let them know there are good things happening and Meridian might be a place they can stay and look for employment here. "
Speakers included WTOK news anchor Lindsey Brown, Meridian Star executive editor Fredie Carmichael, Scott Gray with Insurance Solutions, and Labarron Hedgemon with Citizens National Bank.
