Students at Long Creek Elementary School participated in the school’s “Careers on Wheels” day Oct. 27. Fourteen staff members from community organizations, donated their time to teach students about various jobs related to driving and transportation.

“We needed something that would tie elementary-age students to careers,” Yolanda Bonaparte said. “We want to motivate them to go farther and finish their education.”
