An important aspect of STARBASE is to show students the possibilities for their future. With every activity we do, we discuss a variety of careers that are applicable. We also rely on community members to support this goal as guest speakers and tour guides. So far this year we have had military tour guides; Dr. Jim Arnold, a podiatrist; Lisa Zerull, RN, PhD; Fire Marshal Lt. Pifer and his canine Heidi; David Garber, owner of Garber’s Ice Cream; and Kyle Feldman, a physical therapist. We have a large variety of guest speakers scheduled for the rest of the semester, such as Winchester City engineers, police officer, STEM flights director, air traffic controller, literacy professionals, Army Corps of Engineers, Cedar Creek Battlefield director, and a chemist.
We are always looking for new community members to add to our roster of guest speakers. If you are interested, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you
