COLLEGE AND CAREER DAY AT MINERAL SPRINGS MARCH 2019
College and Career Day was held at Mineral Springs Middle School on March 2019. Dr Flynt, one of our guidance counselors, heads up bringing several visitors to our school representing different career opportunities. Some careers require a college degree and others require an associate or technical community college degree. This year we had 12 individuals and one Police dog visit our school for the event. Our students enjoyed listening to the presentations given and having an opportunity to ask individuals actually working in these careers questions about the jobs, training and education required.
The careers represented were:
Cosmetology, Cosmetology students and Mr Peterson from the Winston Salem Forsyth County Schools (WSFCS) Career Center
Electrical Engineering, Blaine Gray from Forsyth Technical Community College
Finance, Doug Brewer from Community Bank
Flight Attendants, Elizabeth Douglass and Felicia Jean from United Airlines
JROTC/Military, Chief David Martin from North Forsyth High School, WSFCS
Law Enforcement, Officer Zertuche, our school resource officer (SRO), from the WS Police Department and Officer Convery of the Canine Unit from the WS Police Department as well as Annie, a trained Police Dog
Lawyer, Dionne Jenkins from WSFCS Legal Department
Nurse, Stephanie Smith, our School Nurse with the WS Health Department
