La Follette Middle School Faculty and Staff hosted College/ career/STEM night last night for students. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics. This program was designed by the faculty of the middle school for students to interact with people from the community and learn more about career/college options. Teachers from Campbell County High School and TCAT (Tennessee College of Applied Technology) came to talk and demonstrate options such as cosmetology, welding and pharmacy technician. Community volunteers talked about their careers such as park ranger, veterinary medicine, banking, journalism, CSI (TOP PHOTO – Ken Daugherty discusses CSI) and nursing.

Many students and their parents participated. Each student had three sessions and each session talked about a different career option and many had hands on activities. The goal is to excite students about learning and preparing them for high school and beyond. LMS School Counselor, Linda Prim, would like to thank all the faculty of LMS and the volunteers who spent time with the students saying “it takes a village.” (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 03/20/2019-6AM-PHOTO COURTESY OF WLAF’s LINDSEY HUTSON)
