Future Business Leaders of America at Pinkerton Academy in Derry explore careers
FBLA students organized the event that was held at the school. During the session, they were able to ask business representatives such questions as how they got started and why they chose a particular field.
“The kids have done an amazing job, ” Smith said. “They were very responsible. They did a really good job getting the businesses together and moving the kids along. Overall, I think it was a success.”
Getting the businesses to come to the event was probably the most difficult part of the process, said Pinkerton senior Kelly Fitzsimmons, president of FBLA. She said the students made a number of calls before getting the five businesses to attend.
Recruiting at least one business was much easier, however, for Pinkerton senior Allyson DeCloux, also in FBLA. DeCloux said she has known Kerry’s Dance Center owner, Kerry Bacheller, as she dances at her studio.
Also helping organize the event was Pinkerton senior Amanda Joncas, who took photos.
Some business representatives said they were impressed by the students and would come back again if asked.
Bridge said she was asked how she got started in banking, whether or not she really liked it, and whether it was originally something she thought of doing.
