    Calhoun County High School students explore possible career paths

    By Bailey Nichols,


    CALHOUN COUNTY, Fla. ( WMBB ) – Calhoun County High School students have been getting glimpses into their possible futures. The Florida Highway Patrol and a survival flight crew visited 9th and 10th graders Tuesday at Blountstown High School.

    This event is a district-wide initiative to expose students to possible career paths. So far students toured Gulf Coast State College’s engineering program and Chipola College’s medical program. Wednesday students will tour the FSU Panama City campus.

    Each experience gives students the opportunity to ask questions about jobs, necessary schooling, on-the-job training, salary, benefits, and more.

    “Our goal is to take tours around the area to our local colleges. As well as having local business owners come in and speak to our students. And we’re just trying to expose them to careers that might be interesting to them and just have them thinking outside of the box. And we’re trying to plant seeds to give them ideas of what they could do in the future,” Blountstown teacher Lindsay Beam said.

    The math and college career camp began on June 3rd and ends on June 13th. It is completely free for students.
