Career Day at South Columbus High School was an outdoor affair for 2021, a brisk breeze keeping students, staff and vendors comfortable Friday.
Static displays from the Tabor City Police Department, Columbus County Sheriff’s Office, NC State Highway Patrol, NC Wildlife Resources Commission; an ambulance with advanced life support equipment from Tabor City Emergency Services; a heavy rescue vehicle and equipment from Whiteville Rescue Unit, and a long line of tents for a wide variety of businesses anchored on one end by Blacks Tire Service, with a MasTec bucket truck on the other.
Student favorites clearly included the Sheriff’s Office display, with “drunk goggles” that simulate the effects of alcohol impairment challenging anyone who tried to walk a straight line, or peddle a buggy through some cones.
Principal Adam Thompson said the day was a success.
