Turner Elementary students enjoy 'Sweet Treats with Leaders' event

Students at Turner Elementary School participated in a career day on Thursday.

Fifth grade students heard from GA Senator Freddie Powell Sims, a nurse, a marine, a businessman, a dental hygienist, and members of Fox 31 News!

Student Destinie Jones says she enjoyed the program because it explained why making good grades now is important to her future. "If you connect school to the real world, you can see what you have to work on in order to get in that career that you want" says Jones.

Fox 31 News would like to thank Turner for inviting Mike Morrison and Romney Smith to talk about the news and weather!
