Learning to make a living


A student raises her hand to ask Marine Corps Sgt. David Verdoorn and Minnesota National Guard Sgt. 1st Class Chris Popelka a question during career day Wednesday, April 30, at Maple Lake High School.

 

What should I do when I graduate high school? What are the perks and disadvantages of my dream job? How much training or education do I need for that position?
These are questions commonly asked by high school students, so Maple Lake High School hosted career day on Wednesday, April 30, to help answer those questions.
A total of 38 business professionals spoke about their careers. Sophomores through seniors selected three careers they wanted to learn about and rotated to different rooms to hear from and question speakers.
Four of those speakers were Marine Sgt. David Verdoorn, Minnesota Army National Guard Sgt. 1st Class Chris Popelka, attorney Lee Hanson and Paula Redemske, representing health occupations.
