gsSCENE members go Back to School!
Jul 7, 2010
On June 2nd, Myrtle Beach Intermediate School hosted Career Day to give students the opportunity to learn about a variety of careers – many of which they might not be familiar with. As a gsSCENE member and a teacher at MB Intermediate, I decided to see if I could get some members to take part. gsSCENE members responded enthusiastically! Of the 15 booths, 10 were gsSCENE members. These included: Denny Watson, O’Neil McCoy, Michael Smith, Matt Lentz, Sabrina Israel (with Matt London), Tina Hunter, Stacy Kleber, Johanna Whitmer, Nicole Aiello, and Shawn Campman.
Students asked questions about each person’s job, such as their likes/dislikes about their job and how they could best prepare if they wanted a job in that field. One student was so excited to see a map of his neighborhood that O’Neil brought and to learn how his neighborhood was planned and developed. Another student (who is an economically disadvantaged student and therefore typically difficult to motivate) was thrilled that Michael gave him his own newspaper to keep. He read every word of it before the day was out!
Thank you to those gsSCENE members who helped inspire our future generation!- Kimberly Rougeux
