Today was Career Day, and Duncan Middle School eighth-grade students took part in a virtual tour that introduced them to a variety of careers.

The students stayed in their first hour classes through second hour, dismissing during WIN class around 10 a.m.

Career Day is usually done in person, but because of current circumstances with COVID-19, it was done online this year instead.

“I think career day is important because it is very informational and helps us prepare for our future,’’ eighth-grade Maya Warner said. 

Career day is a day designed to help the eighth-graders figure out which classes they want to take in high school depending on what they want to be when they grow up.

Kelan Smith-Johnson said the two-hour virtual tour was informative and helped when it came to planning for the the future.

‘’Career Day is probably one of the most important things for us and our future,” Smith-Johnson said. “Career Day can be boring but it will be better for us in the long run.’’

Career Day is a long-standing tradition for Duncan Middle School kids and much of Stephens County.
