Pleasantville Students Look Into Future Careers

PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. – Professionals from throughout the community made their best sales pitches to Pleasantville Middle School students on Friday during the school’s annual Career Day.

Dozens of parents and volunteers were given 10 minutes to explain to small groups of students what a day in the life of their job is like. Det. Jesse Wollman of the Pleasantville Police Department had no shortage of eager students at his station. Other careers, however, were a tougher sell.

“It’s tough to get them excited about floor covering,” contractor Paul Meberg said jokingly. Meberg has had two children in Pleasantville Middle School and often volunteers for the fair. “It’s a great event.”

At the end Wollman’s presentation, he gave students a chance to walk a line to simulate the experience of a sobriety test. Students first walked the line normally, then again with goggles that simulated eyesight for someone under the influence.

Joining Wollman and Meberg at the event were librarians, attorneys, nurses, dentists, bankers, designers, electrical engineers, biochemists, television engineers and a marketer, who gave students the chance to the redesign the district’s mascot.

“This year it just blew up,” said Lois Shilito, a teacher and Career Day chair. “We had so many volunteers.”
