    On Wednesday, September 20, a variety of people came in and shared what they do for a living and why they do what they do. It was called Careers on Wheels. The Careers on Wheels was designed to teach students about the variety of careers and occupations in which people use their vehicles as part of their jobs. Students in grades kindergarten through fifth grade attended and learned about these careers. Careers On Wheels started in the morning and lasted around two hours.

    Schendel Pest Control was one of the businesses that came to Careers on Wheels. Tom Lierz talked about their new backpacks and how they purchased more backpacks because the business is growing. The backpacks spray chemicals on the bugs to kill them and it helps because they can kill more bugs fast because they have more backpacks. Beetles and spiders are very bad around this time of year so they have been working a lot lately.

    KNZA Radio was also one of the businesses that presented. They talked about how they have an antenna to broadcast the music all the way to the east side of town. KNZA explained to the students how they put a song on the radio and how it will broadcast to the other antenna. They also talked about electronic devices and how to use them properly.

    Brianna Niehues owns Little Bird Photography. She showed the students her equipment and props. Brianna also told them how she doesn’t have a studio and she keeps everything in her car. The students thought that the camera and props were really cool. She also told them that it is really easy to get around with everything in her car.

    Another business that attended the Career on Wheels was Seneca EMS. They came to show students in fourth and fifth grade what they do and some of the equipment that they use while they are in the ambulance. One of the things that they showed and let the students try was a neck brace. Another piece of equipment that the students got to try out was an arm sling. The students said that the ambulance was super fun and it was very exciting to see some of the equipment that the EMT's use when they are in an ambulance.

    S&S Automotive talked about how they run a vehicle through tests to see what is wrong so they know how to fix it. Later they gave a demonstration to the students because they didn’t think the students understood what they were talking about. The presenter from S&S Automotive explained what the truck did and decided to show the students. The bed of the tow truck started to move. It was really loud when they started the truck.

    Seneca Wholesale presenter was Doug Enneking. Doug talked about how he works on vending machines. He also talked about the parts in a computer. Doug brought in a vending machine to show the insides of the vending machine. The student also like what he did, they thought it was really cool.

    NCES would like to thank all of the presenters of the Careers on Wheels.  We appreciate them for taking the time and effort to present to the elementary students.  The students really enjoyed the presentations and viewing the vehicles. Thanks also to Mrs. Laurie Niehues for organizing the event.

    Tom Lierz said,”My favorite part about my job is being out in the field and conversing with people and helping them with their problems. I also thought that the students were quite enjoyable, fun to work with, and they listened very well.”

    “My favorite part of Careers On Wheels was when Tom my neighbor talked about bugs,” said Austin Jones.
