MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - West Hills Elementary School held a College and Career Fair for its students Friday morning.
Students were introduced to speakers who represent different career fields such as military, medical, law and others. Our own meteorologist Andrew Samet was there to represent WTOK.
After a short introduction by each presenter, the students visited them to ask more questions and even get some goodies to take home.
"It's empowering our youth to start really thinking and focusing about their career plan, about going to college. Once you set goals, you're in control of your life and know what direction, what path, you want to go in," says Coach Fredrick Liddell.
Liddell also says the school has this event every year, but also wants to look at other ways to get students interested in thinking about the future at an earlier age.
