Polk Middle celebrates annual College and Career Week

Polk County Middle School recently celebrated its annual College and Career Week with a variety of fun and educational activities.

Highlighting the week was a College and Career Day event held in the school gym for eighth graders, with more than 30 presenters from area businesses and colleges taking part in the event. Presenters had many hands-on and interactive stations for students, who were able to walk around and ask questions about colleges or careers of interest.

Students also played bingo as they participated and were entered to win door prizes from presenters and colleges.

The school community kicked off the week by wearing college T-shirts. Eighth graders also began presenting special announcements to all students and continued that throughout the week.

In classes, students were given a chance to find their career interests through inventories. Students who participated were entered into a door prize drawing for college swag and gear.
