The Community Development Institute Headstart held its annual Community Helpers Day Tuesday.
The overall goal of the event was for kids to interact with the people in the community that work to keep them safe, healthy, and happy. The kids got the opportunity to see inside a police car, an ambulance, and a fire truck. They also received hair cuts from a local barber and got fingerprinted.
"It gives students an idea, or a chance to see what they may want to be in the future," said Elias Lover, CDI Headstart's assistant director. "I'm sure we have future doctors, lawyers, police officers, and even mayors here on our campus."
Mayor Johnny DuPree also stopped by for story time.
"It's all about learning to read and opening the world up," said Mayor DuPree. "The world is really your laboratory because you can do anything you want to do."
CDI Headstart aims to provide its students with a solid foundation for the future. Community Helpers Day is just one way they strive to achieve this goal.
