Arlington Firefighters Zach Hansen and Bob Beam show some of their gear to a group of Haller Middle School students. Haller held its first schoolwide career day on March 8.

Haller Middle School students attended their first schoolwide career day on March 8.

Presenters from 25 different fields talked with the students about their jobs. Jobs ranged from detective and park ranger to several jobs in the aerospace and healthcare industries. Students signed up for careers they were interested in and listened to presenters from that field. 

“Our counselors Jim Evans and Jennifer Peters as well as our ASB advisor, Holly Christmas-Harris, put in countless hours to put on this event,” said Haller Principal, Trever Summers. “This promotes our district goal of preparing students for future endeavors after high school.”

The students completed other career exploration activities in their classroom by using Naviance, a college and career readiness technology tool.
