On Friday, students of Cherokee Elementary School enjoyed a Cruisin' Career Fair, where various entities from across Polk County visited with students and presented their vehicles and daily job routine to curious faces.
The school welcomed representatives from Polk Animal Control, Georgia Power, the National Guard, Cedartown’s K-9 (canine) unit, Polk firefighters and EMS from Polk, Floyd, and Redmond. Additional representatives, including one from Red Top Taxi, were expected later in the afternoon.
“We just want (the students) to be more aware of careers in a fun way and see different sides of these jobs,” said CES Councilor Eleanor Moodley. “We wanted to focus on the positives and show them that side.”
