NEW ALBANY, Miss. (WTVA) -- Take a lunch break to talk about the future.
That's the goal of New Albany High School's Brown Bag Career Day luncheon.
Students who are interested in a career in similar fields are grouped together and then paired up with a professional.
Counselor April Hobson says the program is now in its second year.
Mississippi Radio Group Operations Manager Scott Spencer and WTVA News Reporter Susan Parker shared their experiences with some students interested in broadcast journalism.
"We asked students what were some other careers that we didn't cover last year that they wanted to get more information about this year," Hobson said.
"Radio is a great career and I love what I do and so it's a great opportunity to tell them how much I love it," Mississippi Radio Group Operations Manager Scott Spencer said.
"Having this Brown Bag luncheon I think they call it really helps so I can kind of get an idea what I'll be getting into if it's something I would like to really do as a career," New Albany High School student Chandler Nail said.
Hobson says the program continues to be a popular one at the high school
