Genoa Township SWAT officer Jim McMillen helped a 6th grade student try on some gear which, she observed, was “so heavy I’m about to fall over.” 



Genoa Middle School was abuzz with excitement on Friday, May 6 when, after a two-year hiatus, Career Day returned.  Organizers worked hard to coordinate volunteers representing 28 different careers, all dedicated to exposing students to a vast array of professions.  Pupils had the opportunity to visit sessions aligning with their interests, and were also given time to discuss and reflect on what they learned and observed throughout the day.  After the event concluded, they wrote thank you notes to the presenters.
