Attorney Kendra M. Norman gave students at Canyon Ridge Intermediate School a rare peek into the legal field.
The school hosted a “Career Fair” on Jan. 24 to help expose 6th grade students to different career options.
“I want to educate these students on the education and other requirements needed to be an attorney, but also about the vast number of different kinds of attorneys and practice areas out there,” Norman said. “I hope to differentiate what I, and other attorneys, do on a daily basis from the portrayals these students may have seen on TV or the internet.
“I also want to let them know that my profession is attainable for them even though college and ultimately deciding what they want to do is far off in the future for them right now.”
Other featured professions were those of an engineer, physical therapist, home inspector, bounty hunter, and recruiter.
“The students were very kind and respectful, and they asked wonderful questions like what my favorite thing about my job is,” Norman said. “I had a wonderful time, and I’m so glad that I had this opportunity to share my experience with the students.”
