JONESVILLE — The Mary B. Thomas Girls Youth Circle Unit #16 held their very first Career Day Nov. 2 at Fosters Chapel Baptist Church in Jonesville We wanted to impress upon the girls that we have people in the community that have careers and that by sharing the qualifications and their personal experiences they will have an opportunity to become or pursue these public service careers.
We had a variety of speakers that wanted to share their experiences with the girls and impress upon them that education was the key to success. They stress to the girls to stay in school, get good grades and follow your dreams. A career is something that you enjoy and have a passion for, and a job is something that you go to and perform what is required of you. Dreams do come true, just believe, achieve and you will succeed.
All of the speakers express their feelings about wanting to help people and that is why they enjoy working with the public. They also congratulated the girls on wanting to help others in their respective communities and that same passion can lead to becoming the next governor of South Carolina, lawyer, mayor, deputy sheriff, social worker, nurse administrators, and teacher.
Ms. Stewart thank all the guests for coming out and talking with these young ladies and truly believe that “together we can make a difference.”
Special thanks to Michael Brewington, the fire department and paramedics for taking time out from their busy schedule to speak to the girls, but was called away before they could share their information.
Ms. Stewart in closing repeated the scripture that inspired her throughout her career.
“I can do all things through Christ that strengthen me.” — Philipians 4:13.
