A Career Vehicle Day event took place November 18th at The Trail.

The vehicles on campus were truck from Winters Electric Company, a fire truck, an Army truck and a command truck. Salute Chew Food Truck, a hearse from Robinson’s Funeral Home, as well as a helicopter was also on hand.

“The goal at Saluda Trail Middle School is to sour students for the future, and nothing brings this reality home more than hosting a college and career week and vehicle day,” said Mrs. Massey-Blanding, Saluda Trail’s Career Counselor.

The entire 6th grade got to explore the different vehicles. Students had a chance to get up close to the vehicles that they often see in our community and speak to people who operate them.

“It was super fun because of going inside the helicopter,” said Jay Goss, a 6th grader.

“It was fun and I had a good time,” said Ja’Cadon Johnson-Neal, also a 6th grader.

“Reading about colleges and careers in a textbook or researching careers on the internet is very different from learning about a career straight from someone in the field,” added Mrs. Massey-“Vehicle day provides an interactive and dynamic learning experience, where students can ask questions directly to professionals and presenters can invite students to tackle real-world problems.”

The day also provided beginning photography students in Mrs. Dantzler’s class an opportunity for some real world photography experience.
