Polk County Career Day 2017

Students got to undertake a variety of tasks during the Annual Elementary Career Day held this year at the Polk County College and Career Academy, with more than 50 businesses taking part as well as programs within the PCCCA. Students learned from a GBI bomb disposal robot technician how the equipment he uses on the job works.

The Polk County College and Career Academy hosted professionals and local officials from more than 50 different entities locally to take part in the 2017 Career Day for elementary school students. 

Third, fourth and fifth graders from around Polk School District gathered last week to tour around different booths and learn what it really means to be everything from a bomb disposal technician for the Georgia Bureau of Investigation to hammering nails on a construction site. 

Students from Cherokee, Northside, Youngs Grove and Westside Elementary Schools all took part in the Oct. 10 event.
