40 Professionals to Fill School Gymnasium for Career Day


School leaders at Flagship Academy are bringing in 40 area professionals for the school’s career day on Thursday, May 21. The gymnasium will look like a career fair with each professional set up at a booth with information to share with students. The fair will run for four hours to give students plenty of time to visit each station. The list of occupations students can explore is broad including a CEO, police officer, pharmacist, nurse, IT professional, marketing specialist, author, social worker, editor, attorney, firefighter, photographer, and engineer…just to name a few.

Dean Alisha Durrett is organizing the event. She said, “Our goal is to inspire and empower our students to go to college, get a degree, and to be an outstanding member of the community. We want our students to see people of various backgrounds and cultures living productive lives and doing wonderful things to serve others.”
