Chuck Leonard visits Career Day at Head Start Center

PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) - The Head Start Center in Phenix City hosted its Career Day Monday.

Representatives from all different types of careers were in attendance from police officers to firemen to dog trainers.

News Leader 9's Chuck Leonard spent his morning there talking with kids about the ins and outs of working in television. The children, ages three to five, were full of questions.

We spoke with their principal Dr. Carolyn Keasal, who told us why having a career day is so important for children this young.

"The earlier that you reach children as far as inspiring them to do things, the better it is so we just want to make them aware early on of all the options out there and see the different jobs out in the community."

She continued to say Career Day shows children the purpose of going to school and all of the things they need to do in order to have those careers.

She hopes it will encourage the children to strive for success.
