The Indian Hill Public Schools Foundation recently coordinated Career Day for eighth grade students at Indian Hill Middle School. Students rotated through multiple learning sessions to explore a variety of careers.

The presenters consisted of alumni, district parents and community members: Steve Ashbrock (fire chief); Shawn Carson (anesthesiologist); Chris Dixon (chemical engineer/skin care); Emily Dixon (sports orthopedist); Elizabeth Isphording (banker); Johanna Kohr (vice president – Standard Textile); Bob Rhoad (orthopedist); Vaishali Shah (accountant); Courtney Toler (engineer); Arianna Warfel (nurse); and Rob Warfel (FBI agent).

"We use our connections in the community and among alumni to bring real-world career learning into the classroom," said Foundation member Kitsa Tassian Rhoad. "With the Foundation, our goal is to engage students in every building throughout the school year and this experience is just one of many we feel is important to give our students."
