Students get hands-on career advice in Bazetta

Lakeview Elementary holds Vehicle Day

BAZETTA TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WKBN) – A Trumbull County school came up with a unique way to get students thinking about a career path.

Lakeview Elementary School held a Vehicle Day on Wednesday.

Students in grades kindergarten through third grade spent the day exploring 15 different vehicles, including fire trucks, a UPS delivery van and a tow truck, to name a few.

The students were encouraged to jump in the driver’s seat, beep the horn and talk to the driver about his or her occupation.

“I think the kids will get a sense of thinking about what they want to do in the future,” said Ashley Handrych, Lakeview Elementary counselor. “It is hard with younger students to start thinking about what they want to be when they grow up, but this gives them a good hands-on way to start exploring some careers.”

Not all of the vehicles had four wheels, some had four legs. The Trumbull County Sheriff’s department showed off its mounted patrol.
