He's employed by Greydog Mechanical. 2.Todd Holder speaks to students Tuesday about his dual careers at Alva State Bank and Holder Drug. 3. Karen Koehn, counselor at Northwest Technology, discusses careers and plays a game of bingo with Lincoln students. 4. Former attorney Michelle Newton discusses the education required for a law degree at Lincoln Elementary Tuesday.

There's nothing more helpful than hearing from someone with experience. Fourth and fifth graders at Lincoln Elementary School in Alva were given the opportunity to learn about possible future careers during a Career Fair Tuesday morning. Ten volunteers from a variety of businesses and professions spoke to the students who rotated from room to room. Students designated as Lincoln Leaders had the responsibility of introducing the speakers to each class.

Those speaking to the students were Karen Koehn from Northwest Technology, Jesse Jones from Rialto Theatre, Allyson Bush from Daisy Village, Michelle Newton who is a former attorney, Lewis Nighswonger who spoke on agriculture, Dr. Kenneth Brown who is a retired chemistry professor at NWOSU, Brandon Bush from Greydog Mechanical, Brenda Hood from Schuessler Real Estate, and Dr. Timothy Newton, a physician.

Lincoln students now have some expanded ideas on future careers.
