College, careers focus of day for Sunny View students

Former dental hygienist Monica Barber

Fourth and fifth graders at Sunny View Elementary took part in a College and Career Day at the school on June 5.

The special event was organized in conjunction with the college visits students took earlier in the year and were sponsored by a grant from the Polk County Community Foundation.

Eight presenters shared with students their college experiences as well as interesting information about their jobs. The students learned about nursing, physical therapy, criminal justice, dentistry, forestry, education, art and banking.
