Every year around this time, several School District 18 schools - elementary and intermediate - hold Career Days to allow students to get valuable insights from professionals in a variety of vocations. Last week, Public schools 268 and 276 held respective events in which volunteers spoke with students and shared their experiences about their individual careers, including firemen, lawyers, clothing designers, a postal carrier, a cable access TV host, a musician and Courier reporter Dara Mormile and associate editor Neil S. Friedman.
