Joe Pye Elementary holds vehicle career day

LADSON, S.C. (WCIV) - Imagine career day meets hot wheels. That was the idea today at Joe Pye Elementary. {}{}Instead of hearing speakers and presentations, students got to climb into cool vehicles like news trucks, ambulances and fire trucks.{}"This is more engaging," said principal Wanda Carroll Williams. "They are all very excited and stimulated by flashing lights. I think the kids understand concepts of careers much better when they can touch it and actually engage."{}Williams says this type of career day is much more productive, and the idea is catching on at other schools across the tri-county.
