Lake Park - Lark Park Elementary students have big plans for their futures.

"I want to be a lawyer because I like to argue and want to help people," said Regan Taylor.

"I want to be a doctor because I want to make a lot of money," said Stephanie Newham.

From the state patrol to gymnasts, firemen and even news reporters, Lowndes County businessmen and women are helping these youngsters decide what career's right for them.

In twenty years, students at Lake Park Elementary will be the faces you see saving lives, defending our country, and maybe even delivering your news.

"I want to be a television reporter because I think it would be fun to go out and meet people then write about them," said Courtney Pape.

And with help from their teachers and local businessmen and women, students will have the opportunity to achieve the careers they're dreaming of.
