Career paths begin for young students
It's a gloomy day outside, but it's a bright outlook for students at Scotland County Elementary School.
Their journey begins in these school halls for prospects for their future careers.
"We start in pre-K talking about jobs, talking about their family's jobs,” said Scotland County Elementary School’s Counselor Dani Fromm.
It's an early discussion for third and fourth graders, but for the past 25 years, Fromm has seen interests turn into callings.
"I was a high school counselor too. So I kind of have been lucky. This old and this lucky, to teach pre-K clear through 12, and you kind of see the progression and what's important at the different ages,” Fromm said.
Students like Lily Wheeler, who wants to become a pediatrician, and Charle Holland who wants to become a carpenter.
But it's these building blocks fulfilling the school's mission.
"To be a productive member of society. That's our mission at Scotland County R-1. We want you to leave school ready for society," Fromm said.
As the journey begins for these boys and girls, it may just lead them to be like some of the people they’ve met.
"I think it gets them excited about their future and what it holds for them in the end, and what's that job that waiting on them," Fromm said.
