At Franklin High School, career day is a big event. Regular classes are suspended and professionals from all walks of life are called upon to speak to Franklin High School students about what it takes to have a career. The morning session began with a wide variety of presenters from military careers to sports and even dog food sales management. Kailey Grigar, Student Council President, welcomed the students and asked them to not only educate themselves, but to enjoy the experience. Mr. Luza welcomed the guests who would be speaking to his charges and asked students to prepare for the day with a fresh mind about where their future lay. Kadie McCullough, Student Council Project Chair, then got the ball rolling by introducing the morning presenters. As students got their fill of potential careers, even more presentations were being set-up for students to peruse in the gymnasium. Again, a wide variety of options presented themselves for students to learn about as well as colleges and technical schools to learn about. After enjoying lunch and the freebies and giveaways at the booths, the FHS students settled back into the auditorium for round two of the day. Sydney Herring, Student Council Points Chair, introduced the guest speaker for the day, Derek Scott. Scott has owned and operated his highly successful car dealership for quite some time. “I hope I can show you that anything is possible, as long as you decide that it is,” said Scott. After the last round of presenters made their pitches, Bailey Sanders, Student Council Secretary, made sure to say Thank You to all of the presenters, guests and special guest speaker.
