Dr. Dustin Blanton, Keiser University
Blanton talked to students of Dawn McPeak’s science classes about his job as a representative of Keiser University and future careers students should consider. He showed a powerpoint and discussed careers in the biomedical science, research and education industries.
General McGuire talked to students about West Point and the Middle East.
“We can most effectively deal with it [terrorism] by helping our partners in the world. By training our afghan army. I’m most proud about our deployments,” said McGuire, who went straight out of high school into the academy. “What sets us apart from the other military branches is the strength of our non-commission officers.”
Jonathon Hoffman, Honeywell
Air Force MSC (medical service).
“The medical group takes a good part in the Air Force. [They] take care of the people who get hurt. The veterans still get health care until the day they die,” said Hoffman. “We plan, we direct and we coordinate to provide care. I became a MSC to benefit society.”
Mixon talked to the students about drugs and what they can do to your body. He also talked about his time in Afghanistan and how they try to prevent drug production there.
“In Afghanistan we saw open fields as far as the eye could see and what we had to do to prevent them, it’s like just throwing a fire cracker and letting it burn,” said Mixon.
