Career Day Opens Doors to Professional Development

On Thursday, November 16th, 2017, SAS high school students got a chance to meet representatives from many diverse professions at Career Day. Ever wondered what it takes to be an Air Traffic Controller? How about an Architect or a Music Producer? About a dozen volunteers held presentations in different classrooms so students could learn about each profession’s day-to-day tasks and the requirements needed to pursue each career. Students had the opportunity to ask questions of the presenters to learn more about what they do and the rewards and challenges of pursuing specific career paths. We are grateful to have had so many volunteers visit to talk to our students, including the following: 


Krystal Ripa from SUNY Upstate Medical University

Paul Abt from Covanta

Dave Pond from PaperWorks

Tammy Poirier and Yvette Seils from Continental School of Beauty

Lauren Long from (Post-Standard)

Sgt. Jon Seeber from The Onondaga County Sheriff’s Department

TJ James and Steve Brown from SubCat Music Studios 

Jessica Perry and Oma Kassim from Ashley McGraw Architects

John Arrow and Brian Harris from The Federal Aviation Administration (FFA)

Josephine Przepiora and Jodie Brown from SUNY Upstate Medial University/ College of Health Professionals

Captain Adam Kelly U.S. Air Force 


Thank you to all the volunteers who took time out of their day to be there and to guide our students on to their own career paths.
