Cedaredge Middle School hosted its second annual Career Day Jan. 20 for all sixth-eighth grade students. During this event, organized by the Bruin Pride Club, students were given the opportunity to visit with many area community members about their careers and their accomplishments as a professional. It was an excellent opportunity for students to connect with the community, gain real-world knowledge, and realize the importance of their education. Career Day was a positive step toward a successful future for all the students at CMS and is a great opportunity to create a strong and powerful bond between the school and local businesses and members of the community.
The staff at CMS would like to thank the following presenters who helped make Career Day a huge success: Joe Carlson, Edward Jones; Larry Murphy, Cedaredge golf pro; Dan Sanders, Cedaredge Police Department; Don McMillan, Hellman Automotive mechanic; Cody Purcell, Colorado Parks and Wildlife; Derek Kehmeier, Black Canyon Anglers; Caryn Gibson, Delta County School District superintendent; Bob Halley, retired marine biologist; Sgt.
