A Captivating Career Day At Crestwood

Crestwood Middle School in Royal Palm Beach recently welcomed visitors for the school’s annual career day activities.

People from the community gave their time to come and speak to classes about their chosen profession.

There were community leaders from many different paths: doctors, nurses, artists, healthcare workers, college professors and many more.

“This is an impressively welcoming atmosphere,” said Lisa Kelly, representing Wellington Regional Medical Center.

She further commented on the diverse professions of the many speakers who volunteered their time. Happily, she visited with the director of the local KinderCare center, finding a familiar face in the crowd, which added to the ambiance.

The event takes place every year at Crestwood. Students participated in “dress for success” day and continued career building conversations after the speakers left.

Speakers were invited to a continental breakfast with entertainment by the jazz band directed by Amanda Leonard, and lunch was served in the media center at the end of the morning.
