Students receive career advice from U.S. Diplomat


Students involved in the Gear Up program got some career advice from a U.S. Diplomat.

David Whiting spoke to the students about career opportunities with the State Department.

Whiting is involved with Hometown Diplomats, a program that puts a hometown face on foreign policy and explains why getting involved in government is so important.

Those involved with Hometown Diplomats volunteer their time in their hometown to speak with local organizations and schools and encourage children to pursue careers in government.

Whiting believes more kids need to get involved with foreign policy for the future. 

"The message is one about U.S. engagement in the world we need to remain engaged in the world, that's what the department does, it's also about the importance of seeing the educational process through to the ultimate finish," said Whiting.

300 students attended the event.
