Career Day
Outdoor Recreation Planner Chris Smith from the Little Rock District sits with pre-k and kindergarten students from Carver Magnet Elementary School in Little Rock, Ark. for the school’s annual career day on May 15. Smith visited with 125 students from pre-k to fifth-grade telling them how cool her job was and how to pursue a career with the Corps in the future. “I’ve been with the Corps for 34 years and I’ve been wearing this uniform the whole time, well… not this exact uniform but one like it,” Smith said to get a laugh from the students. Smith used her time to focus on water safety while Public Affairs Specialist Jay Townsend talked about the district’s past, present and how the students could be part of the Corps’ future all while stressing the importance of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Carver Magnet offers a full-range curriculum, with a focus on science and math that equips children at an early age with the academic and social skills to live in a technical world.
