High school students attending Career Day in 2009

Career day was a success! We ended up with right around 50 students. The day was chilly and windy, but we managed to miss the rain for the most part. Dr. Merry and Dr. McAvoy gave great presentations and the students were asking good questions. Thanks to Beth Meek for organizing it all.
