In a letter from School Counselor Jordan Rickert, she stated, "Our career day is being held to expose our students to individuals in the community who are working in careers that they have expressed an interest in pursuing. It is our goal to have students exploring careers now, so they can make informed choices on how they schedule classes for their high school years." 

The day's format was to expose students to the five career pathways identified in the Career Education and Work Standards as adopted by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. 

Gatewood presented information regarding the various Pennsylvania DOC careers and responded to questions from the students. The staff at Shikellamy Middle School expressed their appreciation for Gatewood's presentation and stated he did a fabulous job with the students.

This is the second year that SCI Coal Township participated in the Shikellamy School District's Career Day.
