DURHAM, N.C., Jan. 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- News anchors, doctors, state judges, barbers, chefs, lawyers, veterinarians, local police officers, and musicians will gather at Carter Community Charter School for a Career Day on Monday, Jan. 27. Students and parents at the charter school will have the opportunity to connect with the guest speakers and learn about diverse career opportunities within the local community.
The "Annual Falcon Career Day" will take place starting at 9 a.m. at Carter Community Charter School. This event is planned to coincide with the history-making celebration of National School Choice Week 2020, which will feature more than 50,000 school choice events across all 50 states.
"The event is a fun way for our students to learn how important a good education is for a good career," said Keisha Johnson, administrative assistant at Carter Community Charter School. "When children are at a school where they feel engaged and motivated, that helps them prepare for their future."
