Roundstone Elementary Career Day

On Sept. 24th, Roundstone Elementary welcomed several members of our local community for a career fair. Students were able to hear about many different careers, what kind of education is necessary to be successful in those careers, and were given a chance to ask questions of their own. Kentucky State Trooper Michael King, Travis Rogers with the KSP Commercial Vehicle Enforcement division, and the Brindle Ridge Fire Department taught students about their jobs as safety officials. The students enjoyed getting to see their equipment up close. Former Kentucky Wildcat football player Jason Leger discussed his time as a Wildcat and also talked about his current business of raising horses. Graphic designer and co-owner of Rockcastle Embroidery Jessica Albright showed students how she uses technology in her job every day. Several students were excited to know that they were wearing apparel that Jessica made in her shop. Our very own Kerry Taulbee stepped in and gave a wonderful presentation on animal care. She is an animal lover and has worked and volunteered for many years with local vet clinics and horse therapy groups. RES would like to thank all of these wonderful people for taking time out of their busy days to help our students become more aware of career opportunities they may want to explore as they continue their education. We will be inviting many from the health career field to our next career day in November.
