It was a great day at Friday’s Career Day at Southeast Elementary School. Area businesses were asked to briefly show Preschool through 4th grade students what they do. It was almost a carnival-like atmosphere as groups of students bounced from station to station, learning how each business uses reading and math on a day-to-day basis.

Southeast Kindergarten student Beowulf “BW” Tompkins may have found his calling as a play-by-play announcer. The Pittsburg State University Communication Department set up a way for students to watch a game and “call the game” and BW was a natural.
