This morning, I joined about 24 other business professionals in a career day for kids in Warsaw, Virginia. The event was held at Richmond County Elementary School, where more than 500 students separated into small groups among the presenters. Each speaker had their own designated classroom or outdoor space to present to the students about their business or line of work. I spoke to several groups of 20 students about photography, did a show & tell with some of my camera equipment, and answered the kids' questions. Some other attractions for the kids included the local fire department with their trucks, and a medevac helicopter that landed and took off from the school grounds. Special thanks to Amanda, Mary and all of the school's staff who helped plan the day's activities.
