Merriwether Elementary school held College and Career Week to inform students about different careers in our community, our country, and internationally. Students participated in themed days focusing on the workforce. Grades researched various careers and colleges as well. At the end of the week, every grade had different speakers come in to discuss their careers. There was a huge participation from the community. Kindergarten and First grade had their first Careers on Wheels. These students were able to see various vehicles that give us different careers. They got to go inside the vehicles, meet the drivers, and ask questions too. School counselor, Meagan Maness, exclaimed, “Making connections between school and work at an early age is important. When students receive career information at an early age, their motivation can increase, leading to academic success. Showing students various careers, not held by their family members, helps students realize there are many options available.” College and Career week helps students see what types of education they will need to make their dream a reality and gives them goals and aspirations. This is just another way that MES is helping to prepare their students to become an Edgefield County graduate.
