AMS Career Fair Helps Bring Work World to Life
Eighth-grade students at Aledo Middle School experienced the school’s first career fair, thanks to a grant from Aledo Education Foundation. More than 20 businesses, colleges and career leaders provided information for students about the world of work. Students visited with various representatives, completed information on high-school course endorsements and on college preferences.
CBS 11 Meteorologist Jeff Jamison was unable to attend the career fair, but he hosted students Olivia Caggiano and Emelia Gamez, along with AMS teachers Alicia Albin and Kristie Vandergriff, at the Fort Worth station last week. The journalism students interviewed him on his career in broadcast journalism, toured the studio, sat at the news desk where reporters deliver daily news, and worked the green screen that he uses reporting weather each day.
Mrs. Albin said it was a pleasure to see Olivia and Emelia interact with him. “Mrs. Vandergriff and I were both impressed with their poise, confidence and well thought-out questions,” she said.
