VALLEY – Students at Bob Harding-Shawmut Elementary School were recently treated to a special event when public safety and business representatives came and displayed the vehicles they use in the course of their daily jobs.


            “Known as ‘Careers On Wheels,’ this was the first time we’ve hosted an activity of this type, and I think the students really enjoyed it,” said Principal Allison Burton.


            Participants included Valley Police, Valley EMS, East Alabama Fire District, Teague Towing, J. C. Colley Trucking, Floral Expressions and Pigg’s Plumbing.


            “The students got to walk around and see each vehicle, learn about the various jobs they perform, and ask questions,” said Burton. “We appreciate each of the organizations and businesses that took time out of their busy schedules to come and visit with us.”


            Burton added that she hopes to continue “Careers On Wheels” as an annual event.
