Career Day at Sunapee

Kyle Ashley gets a lesson in how to insert a breathing tube into a mannequin by Respiratory Therapist Matt McNally.

SUNAPEE  For the fourth year in a row, students at the middle/high school spent one day of the school year thinking about possible careers. Instead of their teachers at the head of the class, they faced 30 speakers, from cops to engineers and chefs, to hear about all the different jobs they might want to do and get some advice on how to choose a career. 

Keynote speaker David Calhoun of Blackstone Group, an investment firm with offices around the world, told the students at assembly to beware of narrowing their choices too soon. He even advised students to take some time after high school and try their hands at a trade.
