Career Day

LEMOORE - Students in grades three through six got a first-hand look at the learning necessary in life outside of school on Sept. 12. Meadow Lane Elementary School hosted 12 people from Kings and Fresno Counties, of varied careers to come and speak to the students on Career Day. The speakers reminded the students throughout the presentation that they must continually learn if they want to succeed. “Life is all about learning, our students need to know that and that the successful person is the one who will be able to learn new things, no matter what it is they choose to do,” said Mr. Kenney, Principal of Meadow Lane Elementary School.
