To provide students with a look at the careers available to them, Lanier Middle hosted over 40 community presenters who provided information about their employers and available careers at Career Day. Presenters included FCPS high school academies, City of Fairfax Police and Fire Departments, Inova Health Systems, the U.S. Geological Survey, U.S. Transportation Safety Administration, National Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center, DLR Group, U.S. Department of Defense, Furnace Manufacturing, and the Virginia Consortium for Teacher Preparation in Vision Impairment. Presenters set up interactive table displays and answered student questions about their careers. The event helped students connect their learning in the classroom to the
real world of work.
