Juanita Napper came in to speak to Mr. Martin’s class about her career in the hotel industry. She wanted students to see how an interview and your personality can affect your chances of getting a job. “Do you know why I gave him the job? It was because instead of interviewing him, he was interviewing me. “But you know what I told him [employee] to do, I told him ‘There’s a dress code.’ I made him go to Walmart and buy those arm sleeve things to cover it up [his tattoo sleeves],” said Napper.

Rodrick Dixon Sgt and Travis Flynn, 6 Civil Engineer Squadron
Dixon and Flynn went to Kristina Chiodio’s classroom (science) and answered the students questions on what it really meant to be a fire fighter and real live firefighting versus how firefighting is shown on TV. On top of being fire fighters, they are also in the US Air Force and they talked to the students about what that is like.
“To start with there is definatly a lot less romance, were not all beautiful and [we] dont have the british accents like you see, we’re also a lot more boring. We’re sitting around the station training, reading, doing homework. The fire department is my secound family,” said Dixon.
“As for the military aspect we’re not just going out and killing people,” said Dixon.
