Career choices discussed at WMS

A panel of two local students and three local professionals spoke about their school and job experiences Wednesday at a career forum for seventh-graders at Wapakoneta Middle School.

Morgan Dirr, a senior and soon-to-be graduate of Wapakoneta High School, talked to students about the transition from middle to high school. Megan Hayzlett, who recently finished her freshman year at Bowling Green State University, was able to discuss the transition from high school to college.

The three local professionals who spoke included Auglaize County Sheriff’s Deputy Samuel Blank, New Beginnings Early Childhood Development Center owner Paula Bordner and Crown Equipment senior engineer Chris Bruns.

Wapakoneta Middle School guidance counselor Kristi Fisher said they try to choose professionals who have jobs that are popular among students.

“We basically picked our panel of three professionals based on what the students researched when we did our career occupation search,” she said.
