McMillan Magnet Middle School held its annual Career Day on Thursday in the school’s gym. More than 454 students were expected to participate in the fair, which will give them opportunities to participate in activities such as “Careers Reality Check” and connect with professionals representing 19 career fields, including engineering, medicine, law and justice, nursing, military service, insurance, and food service. The fair also gave students information about two and four-year degree programs.

Julie Stavneak of J. Development Company spoke with middle schoolers about her job during the fair.

Amado Martinez, a bilingual claims representative with the Social Security Office, also spoke with students. So, too, did American Family Insurance Agent Edward Breckenridge.

Eighth-grader Aaliyah Abram listened to classmate Jaden Smith's breathing while learning about medical careers from Nebraska Methodist College nursing student Britney Cope.
