Bob Dunning: A new twist on Career Day

SHARE YOUR CAREER365体育投注 … the good folks running our several junior high schools in town are looking for a few good women and men who are willing to spread the good news about their careers … or maybe they want you to warn students not to enter your career field …

Either way, Holmes Junior High counselor Ellen Shields ([email protected]) writes “We are in need of volunteers from all career fields to fill our presentation spots. This is a great opportunity for students to get a glimpse into possible future careers.” … Note: this presentation is for all of Davis’ junior high schools … the event will run on Monday, June 1, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. …

According to Shields, “We ask that you are able to log in for a WebEx webinar/meeting at 10:45 a.m. so that we can provide a brief formatting overview and be available until approximately 12:30 p.m.” … your actual presentation will run from 5 to 7 minutes, with ample time for questions and answers from the students … if interested, you should contact Shields at the email address above …

My experience with these things is they are invariably interesting, sometimes inspiring and truly meaningful for students and presenters alike … I was once asked to participate in career days at Davis High School back before the discovery of electricity, which means I had to show up in person … among the “tips” we were given ahead of time was to “wear what you would ordinarily wear at work.” …

365体育投注Given that I did all my typing at home, I showed up in my pajamas … I have not been invited back since …

HIDING OUT … as my sweetheart and I continue to shelter in place with our four teenagers, dodging the wily virus as best we can, I have been banned from my daily swim that I began four years ago at a local fitness club …

It now appears that swimming pools — other than the backyard variety — may be the last things to come back, so I pulled out my old Fitbit and began walking around our East Davis living room while watching Andrew Cuomo launch his 2020 presidential campaign with daily TV appearances …

365体育投注My Fitbit keeps track not only of my steps, but also my miles, with the goal being to one day reach New York City … I move the little thumb tack on my large map of the United States once a week to measure my progress … as of this morning, I’m on the outskirts of Battle Mountain, a small town on the high desert of Nevada that is famous for its long-standing Owl Café …

365体育投注Battle Mountain also has a beautiful new municipal swimming pool .. I think I’ll stop in for a dip …

SOAP AND WATER … I know we’re supposed to wash our hands 20 times a day, so I do, and so far it appears to be working … still, since we’re dealing with a virus that has attacked 186 countries at last count and continues to baffle scientists all over the world, it’ hard to imagine that a third-grader can flat out kill it all by herself with a 50-cent bar of soap purchased at The Dollar Tree accompanied by a splash or two of ordinary Davis tap water …

11-WORD ESSAY UPDATE … Susan enters the long-running 11-word essay contest with this: “March foretold graduation, camping. Sharpie struck. Calendar now reads defrost chicken.” …. We know that drill around our house, too, Susan …

SPEAKING OF 11 WORDS … keep those cards and letters coming in, folks … there’s a swell prize at the end of this exercise …
