Career Day!!

Many thanks to all the professionals who volunteered their time to share their career paths with the students of LA Academy.   Below are some pics of the event that took place yesterday, June 16, 2010:
The Principal, Maria A. Borges, with students and presenter

LAPD officer chats with students at nutrition

NBA Referee Violet Palmer motivates students to aim for the top

Cynthia Flores from Univision encourages shy girls to speak up

Jim Cloonan, Marine researcher makes his presentation in scuba gear

This event was well-received by students who learned about a wide variety of careers throughout the day.  Over 50 presenters were eager to talk to students and share information about each of their careers.  Poignantly, one student asked why no teachers came to present at the Career Day.  He reprimanded the organizers for not including teachers.  Touche.
