BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — Our News Director here at NBC33 spent the morning talking to kids about how to become future leaders.
David D’Aquin talked to the students at South East Middle School as a part of their career day. Professionals from all different fields explained what they do and how their education helped them get there.
David talked to the kids about his time as a weather man, and even about his trip overseas to cover the Iraq war. The kids had lots of questions, and the school's principal says that reaction is exactly what they hoped for.
"Without letting the kids know why we are teaching them what we teach, or how they can take what they learned here everyday and apply it to real life, they really have no buy in, so it takes all the things that we do everyday and brings it in," Amber Renee Boyd, Principal at South East Middle School, explained.
