Learners Today, Leaders Tomorrow. That's the motto at Manatee Elementary and on Thursday students were thinking hard about what kind of future leaders they will be.
The school held its annual Career Day, inviting a dozen different business people and professionals into the school to talk about their jobs and what it takes to make it on the job after school.
Representatives from the Coast Guard, Edison College, the Lee County Sheriff's office and WINK News were among the presenters.
Administrators at the school say exposing the school's 5th graders to a variety of careers is important because it gets the children thinking about their future education and what they want out of life. It also opens them up to choices they may never have considered before.
WINK News Anchor Lois Thome talked to the students about careers in broadcast news. The students helped write this web story and are responsible for taking the pictures accompanying it.
