VALLEY – Students at LaFayette Lanier Elementary School got an up-close view of various occupations Friday during the school’s first “Career Day.” Representatives from nine different businesses and organizations participated in the event and displayed vehicles associated with their work.


“We’ve done a similar activity for several years at Shawmut Elementary, but this was the first time it’s been hosted at LaFayette Lanier,” said school counselor Connie Guice. “The kids really enjoy seeing the big trucks and having the opportunity to ask questions.”


Participants included representative from East Alabama Water, Sewer and Fire District, WOW Internet-TV-Phone, Alabama Power, Scott’s Towing, KISSIN’ 95.3, Floral Expressions, Valley Police Department, Kona Ice, and Courtesy Limousine.
