On October 18th, 2012, students at the Greensboro Elementary school will have more thoughtful answers to the eternal question "What do you want to be when you grow up?" after a recent career day with the Caroline County Sheriff's Office, and other professionals in various careers.
During Greensboro Elementary schools career day, students had the opportunity to learn about exciting careers from people who actually work in specific career fields. This encourages children to begin thinking about what they might want to be when they grow up. Teachers at the school increase the effectiveness of a career day event by keeping students engaged with an assortment of entertaining activities.
Caroline County Sheriff's Commander, Lieutenant Ronald Dixon is the commander of the Patrol Division. Lt. Dixon has been in Law enforcement for almost 20 years and is a local volunteer fire fighter for the Goldsboro Fire Department. Lt. Dixon displayed all the equipment that a patrol deputy needs to do his job. The children were given a tour of the inside of a patrol car and were able to ask questions.
Lt. Dixon was just one of many professionals at the school's career day designed to open up the eyes of our young children as to what it means to be Caroline County Deputy Sheriff. We look forward to being invited again next year.
