Guest presenters included community and parent volunteers
Students at St. Matthews Elementary recently had the opportunity to explore what their future could be during the school’s Career Week. Thanks to community and parent volunteers, the students learned about educational paths, day-to-day duties and the skills needed for specific careers. Career Week guest presenters included state Sen. Julie Adams, former Kentucky Lt. Gov. and Louisville Mayor Jerry Abramson, Nanz and Kraft co-owner David Kraft, Louisville City FC head coach James O’Connor, artist David Schuster, WAVE 3 news anchor Shannon Cogan, Heitzman’s Bakery owner Margueite Schadt and Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS) assistant superintendent Dr. Katy Zeitz.
On “Future Friday,” students dressed up in uniforms or outfits to represent the career they would like to have when they grow up to tie in the school’s Tiger Topic of “Vision.” The school’s Tiger Topics help students focus on specific character education traits each month.
