Ehret said a lot of students were just following friends along to different booths, but he said the hope is that some of the information they gave Wednesday will sink in and create interest in the field.
Sarah Haynes and a few of her friends from Madelia High School visited the booth. Unlike a lot of sophomores, Haynes has a handle on her career aspirations, at least in a broad sense.
“I want to go into the medical field,” Haynes said.
Judging from her steady composure when the interns described and demonstrated on a fake leg how to insert an IV into the soft tissue of a tibia, Haynes is headed in the right direction.
Other career fields represented ranged from the Department of Natural Resources to radio broadcasting to photography.
