Career on Wheels

Students and volunteers gathered in the parking lot of Iowa Central’s Webster City campus Thursday, May 16, for Career on Wheels.

“Career on Wheels is an incredible learning experience for fifth-grade students in our area,” according to Colette Bertran, Iowa Central’s Webster City campus director. “This event provides students with the opportunity to learn about different careers that involve a set of wheels in the community. Businesses talk to students about the relevance of why they use or need a vehicle for their job. They also share what a typical day is like, what skills or education are required for their job and answer any questions the students may have.”

In its third year, Career on Wheels is supported by grant money. This year Webster City, South Hamilton and Eagle Grove schools participated.

Officer Dylan Rose, of the Webster City Police Department, talks with students about his career. He was joined by Officer Dalton Mourlam, center in back, and Sgt. Eric McKinley. Partnering businesses this year were: Webster City Police Department, Karl Chevrolet, Webster City School District Transportation, Iowa Central Ag Department, Webster City Street and Line departments, United Cooperative, VDMC Emergency Department, The Trash Man, Hamilton County Secondary Roads, Webster City Fire Department, Nielson, and Joe Alvarez and Smoking Hot Rednecks food trucks. — Daily Freeman-Journal photos by Jane Curtis
