Slocomb Elementary students meet WTVY anchors at Career Day

By  | 

SLOCOMB, AL. (WTVY) -- Kids at Slocomb Elementary were excited to learn about different professions Thursday morning at their Career Day.
High on their list was meteorology and broadcasting.

A lot of these students, from third to fifth grades had the same kind of curiosity most of us have at that age, like questions about T.V.
With many years in the Wiregrass, WTVY-TV's Reginald Jones had a lot to share.

"I think news is important because that way you know what's going on. You're not like, 'Oh that happened. I didn't know that.' Weather is important because if a bad storm is coming, you can be like, 'Oh I need to get ready for that.'

So Reg and WRGX meteorologist Eric Doboroka spoke to the Slocomb Elementary students on what it takes to be a broadcast meteorologist and why it's an important profession,

The 305 students also heard from the Geneva County Sheriff's Department, Slocomb Fire and Rescue Squad, nurses, and physical therapists, among several others.

Hopefully all of these professions will get them thinking about how they can make a difference in today's world.

Students also heard from a former Alabama football player to round out the day.
