Career Countdown – Centreville Middle School

 Bibb County Extension Coordinator Matt Hartzell worked with Economic and Community Development Regional Extension Agent Cynthia Whittaker to deliver the Career Countdown workforce and financial education program to 115 7th graders at Centreville Middle School (CMS) on November 6 and 7.  The program was hosted by 7th CMS Social Sciences Teacher Kalee Vernon.  On Day 1, the students chose a profession to practice for the day. Once they chose their career, students managed a monthly take-home salary in a simulation where they paid bills and grocery shopped using their assigned net salary.  On Day 2, students completed a career and educational plan activity where they identified areas of interest, then career clusters and associated educational options.  The idea is to help students learn about real life expenses, as well as explore career options well in advance of graduation from high school.

Slideshow – 4-H Summer Day Camp

 

Forty-six (46) Bibb County youth participated in our 3rd Annual 4-H Bibb County Summer Day Camp held July 10-13, 2017.  There were two separate two-day sessions—Session 1 on July 10-11 and Session 2 on July 12-13.  Program activities were based at Bibb County High School (BCHS) and field trips were taken to several locations in Bibb County.  Youth participants painted art on canvas, harvested vegetables from the BCHS garden, learned about the Cahaba River National Wildlife Refuge, the Cahaba River and its aquatic life, received information about healthy water and refreshments, saw and made pottery at Miller Pottery, volunteered at Helping Horses Alabama, and enjoyed a hike and swim at Brierfield Ironworks Historical State Park.

We at the Bibb County Extension Office would like to thank the 4-H youth participants, their parents and families, Bibb County 4-H Volunteers Courtney Lambert, Tessa Mayfield and Roger Brothers, Bibb County Master Gardener Volunteers Michelle Giddens and Sharon Hope, Bibb County High School staff, and the Cahaba River Society for making the 2017 Bibb County 4-H Summer Day Camp so fantastic!
