On Tuesday, March 14, a group of Lake Ridge New Tech Middle School students were able to attend a HealthCare Career Expo. This event took place at the Dean and Barbara White Community Center in Merrillville and was sponsored by Victory4Kidz.
Our students were able to speak with exhibitors about their specific fields, education requirements, and participate in actual hands-on activities.
Some of our students were able to try their skills doing simulations of CPR, ultrasounds, and wound care. Our students thoroughly enjoyed this event and the opportunity to speak with different representatives regarding their professions.
The hospitality bestowed upon us was greatly appreciated and hopefully I will be able to take more students on events such as this in the future.
Thank you Dr. Sharon Johnson-Shirley, and Mr. Nwannunu for your support and for attending this event with me and our students.
