Career representatives came from around the spectrum, from agriculture to automotive repair, from education to engineering.“Most seventh-graders have no idea what they want to do as a career,” said Dibrell guidance counselor Chastity Wrisner. “This is a great head start to get them ready for their future.”Students were able to gain valuable information to help them make future educational and career decisions, organizers said.Laughter could be heard down the hallway coming from the chemistry classroom of Dan Swarling and Jeff Boles, two chemistry professors at Tennessee Tech.
