WELLS — Wells High School held its third annual Career Day on April 16.

More than 40 guest speakers accepted the school’s invitation to talk with students over a two-hour period about what they do for work, and the education and experience that helped them arrive at and perform in their chosen occupations.

Four hundred ninth- through 12th-grade students were able to sign up in advance for the various career sessions offered to ensure that they could hear the speakers of most interest to them.

“The variety of speakers is key to the success of the event,” said Jackie Quinton, head of the Career Day Committee. “Our guest speakers represent careers in engineering, professions in IT, real estate, insurance, banking, woodworking, hair dressers, photography ”“ to name a few. We couldn’t do this without the willingness of all these individuals to give their time and talents to enlighten our students.”
