Plainville High hosts Career Day

PLAINVILLE – On Friday, Dec. 16, Plainville High students had the opportunity to meet with – and pick the brains of – more than 50 professionals from the area at the school’s Learning Adventure Career Day event.

Law enforcement, physical therapy and media pros were on hand, as were those in the funeral services, insurance and car sales industries, to name a few.

Board of Education member Deb Pikiell was pleased with the turnout and pointed out that many of the professionals are PHS grads. “The career gallery combined with full-day career exploration sessions provided students with a great chance to explore the many career opportunities they can choose from as they begin to plan for their futures,” said Pikiell.

Plainville High School principal Carl Johnson thanked the visiting professionals for carving out time to chat with students.

In a letter to the mentors, Johnson said Career Day “was a huge success.”

“We are so grateful to all the professionals who took time out of their day to help us provide insight and opportunities for our students,” the principal stated.

“Our students had the ability to explore a multitude of career options on that day, and help to answer what their pathway will look like after graduation. It was a special day for PHS and characteristic of the opportunities we provide our students as they prepare for their futures.”
