Polo Community High School students got a break from typical class sessions Wednesday thanks to a career day celebration.
Professionals from around the region visited the school to tell students about their jobs and show them the variety of careers available to them. Representatives from us here at WREX and our media partners from the Rockford Register Star discussed journalism and broadcast television.
School leaders emphasized the importance of students considering their potential careers before they graduate high school.
"It's very important for them to have an idea or start getting an idea of what they want to do after high school, because like we say, with the job market like it is, as shaky as it is, it's good for them to prepare with their classes and reaching out to the members of our community in regard to their future plans," counselor Sheila Donmeyer said.
This was the first year Polo held career day and Sheila hopes to continue the event in the future.
