“Move Over Spencer Bruce, We Found Your Replacement.”
At first glance, it looks like an elementary school Halloween party. Students at Maryville Elementary in Bullitt County parade around the cafeteria dressed as police officers, construction workers, doctors, and more. Look closer and their unusual school outfits offered glimpses of jobs they’re considering a few years down the road. These kindergarten through fifth graders, traveled from table to table visiting representatives from area businesses, exploring possible careers. Nearly 300 students attended this year’s career fair.
Louisville Water Education and Outreach staff talked with students about how we get water from the Ohio River and what it takes to clean and deliver Louisville Pure Tap™. They also learned about all of the people who make that happen every day. First grader Holly Walden, dressed as a ballerina, wasn’t quite ready to commit to a water-related career, but said she would use the product, “I’m gonna be a dancer, but I’ll still drink a bunch of water.”
