Thomasville - Jeremiah Freeman wants to be a Physical Therapist. He says, "I like helping people, being around people. Once you help someone, that builds up yourself."
And on Tuesday, the High School senior learned more about a career in physical therapy, at a health fair sponsored by Archbold Hospital.
"We're just real thrilled to be able to do this," says Laura Kennedy, Employment Manager. "This is the first time we've done it. So far so good, and we'll hope to be doing it every year."
Health Care Teacher Renn West says this is a great opportunity for her students to learn about more than just nursing. "I can only teach them so much in a classroom," says West. "When they're exposed to the professionals from archbold that are here today, they can get a lot more hands on and a lot more idea about what's out there, what opportunities are available for them."
Jeremiah says seeing those opportunities helps him plan for the future. He says, "Even if I change my mind, even if physical therapy isn't what I want to do, you've got all these different fields you want to work in, it helps a lot."
So that maybe one day, he can help others. Students enrolled in the Health Care program can receive their Nursing Assistant certification for free, and work at the hospital while still in school.
