On Monday, every student at
Zion Lutheran School in Lincoln ditched their routine Monday
classes, but no one got in trouble for it. Instead they
learned some real-life lessons about careers and hobbies.
Altogether there were 15
people on hand to present a total of 45 different sessions about what
they do in their jobs or careers, or what they enjoy doing as a
hobby or craft.
The adults who offered the
workshops included veterinarian technician Tina Lynn, sign
language instructor Linda Schaefer, pizza maker Chad Batson of
Stuffed-Aria, Spanish teacher Cindy Beccue and cake decorator
Peggy Payne of Peggy's Place Bakery. Autum Robison offered
sessions on speech and drama, and Jennifer Prather of Babyations
taught them how to make hairbows. Amy Naughton led afternoon
sessions about caring for livestock. In addition, David Opperman brought out a
combine for the kids to explore.
Hobbyist Paula Crawford helped
the kids make no-tie blankets that will be donated to the St. Louis
Children's Hospital. Hunting enthusiast Rick O'Hara shared
interesting facts about various forms of wildlife. Jan Sielaff
offered a class called "Fun With Food." Dawn Steiner
assisted the kids in baking cookies, and Joe Stambaugh discussed
woodworking with students.
Also doing presentations
were Patty Huffer of the Logan County 4-H, who talked about the 4-H
Aerospace Adventures program, and Clarissa Akpore, also with 4-H,
talked about Agriculture in the Classroom.
