J.D. Davis Elementary hosts 2nd annual career day

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - J.D. Davis Elementary hosted their 2nd annual career day for second graders through fifth graders.

More than thirty speakers showed up and spread out among different classrooms.

Some of the careers and companies that were on hand were firefighters, Piggly Wiggly, Chick-fil-A, lawyers, a professional chef, and everything in between.

School leaders want the community to know that this is your chance to show these kids that there is an entire world full of careers that they chose to take on.

"We are all about building leaders and casting dreams for our scholars," said Mary Moreland, J.D. Davis' academic coach. "We want scholars to see careers beyond their neighborhoods that their horizons can expand and their dreams can be bigger."
