Atkinson Explores World of Opportunities


Students at Atkinson were exposed to an array of occupations they can pursue in the future during Career Day.

Professionals across a variety of fields, including law enforcement, culinary arts, engineering, pet therapy and music, visited the school to discuss their jobs with students. The school’s gymnasium, which was set up to resemble a typical job fair, featured several stations that facilitated the conversations. With Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kishore Kuncham in attendance, students were tasked with asking questions of the professionals, taking notes, analyzing their findings and ultimately choosing the career choices that interested them the most.

Atkinson’s Career Day was designed to serve as an informative and interactive forum of two-way conversations between students and professionals.
