Fourth-graders to tour GCCC

Edith Scheuerman Elementary School's fourth-grade students have been exploring possible careers and the type of education required to be successful in those fields.

On Thursday, they will travel to Bernadine Sitts Intermediate Center to see where they will be attending school next year. They will then visit Horace Good Middle School and Garden City High School.

From there, they will travel to Garden City Community College, where they will visit a number of departments. The students will participate in a Career Café with five different speakers discussing different educational opportunities offered at GCCC. The areas that will be presented include agriculture, arts, cosmetology and criminal justice. Students will have an opportunity to eat lunch with college students on the campus and get an idea of what campus life is like and talk with current students.
