Fitz Robling, Staff Reporter

On Wednesday, January 19th, RB will be hosting its biannual career day.  Students will go to classes 1-7 before going to homeroom.  In homeroom they will receive their session schedule telling them which career presentations they will be attending.  The first session will start at 1:00 p.m.  An expo featuring colleges, businesses and military forces will be going on in the main gym. Over the course of the event, students will attend to career sessions as well as some time at the expo in the main gym.

“Career day has been designed for the entire student body. There is something for everyone. It is never too late to decide on a career, and this is designed to help the students do that,” said organizer and Applied Arts Chair, Patty Sarkardy.  

The career session will be taught by experts from the field. Some of the careers featured include massage therapist, T.V. broadcasting, Music, Law and Martial Arts.  Local FOX sports broadcaster Corey McPherrin will be the presenter for T.V. broadcasting.  Also attending career day will be Jim Peterik, who is most known for co-writing and performing “Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor.  He has also written songs for artist such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Cheap Trick and REO Speedwagon. Jim Peterik was born in Berwyn, Illinois.
