Farmingville, NY – Thursday November 2nd and Friday November 3rd, Councilwoman Valerie Cartright, in conjunction with many local professionals, spent the day in the hallways and classrooms of RC Murphy Junior High School and Terryville Elementary School. Both schools hosted their annual Career Awareness Day and there were community member participants from many backgrounds. From law enforcement officials to veterinarians, to artists and musicians, the students were provided with a wide array of career paths to choose from and learn about.“I wear many hats,” explained Councilwoman Cartright. “I am a government representative but I also have other education, life and work experience.” At the Elementary School, the Councilwoman was sure to convey to the students that they are able to do anything they put their hearts and minds to. The Councilwoman described in detail her responsibilities as a government official and she also tested the knowledge of the students by asking them about the different levels of government and how many years it would be before they can vote. At the Junior High School, the Councilwoman discussed career paths and how they impact quality of life and work life balance. There was animated and spirited discussion about government participation at both schools.For more information about the Three Village School District and to see pictures from Career Day, please visit their website.
