We were recently invited and attended James Bowie Elementary School's career fair. At first, we didn't know what to expect or could even imagine the questions we would be asked by these young bright minds. To say we were excited to share our plumbing knowledge and showcase some fun experiments with the kids, is an understatement.
James Bowie Elementary School has successfully strived to improve student academic achievement. In 2008-2009, the Texas Education Agency rated Bowie Elementary a recognized school. In 2009-2010 it was an exemplary school. In 2015-2016 James Bowie Elementary earned 5 distinctions from the Texas Education Agency. They promote parent involvement by hosting monthly parent meetings and encouraging parents to participate on the Site-Based Decision Making Committee, in the PTA, and as volunteers. Parents of young children can also be involved in the HIPPY program.
Learning this about the school made us even more excited as we like to partner with organizations that are constantly working to improve. It was our pleasure to join them and share our knowledge. We shared some laughs with the kids and gave them a brochure to take home to their parents.
At Metro-Flow Plumbing, education is at the core of our belief system. We believe that we are here to educate others to that they may take preventive measures to avoid costly plumbing problems. Sounds odd? We like to work honestly and create long lasting relationships. We always explain what we are going to do in detail, answer all questions, and then proceed with the work once our client has confirmed they are ok with what has been described. Sharing our learnings with the kids at James Bowie Elementary School's career fair came easy to us.
By 2030, approximately 79 million people in the workforce will have reached retirement age. Meanwhile, at the same time only 41 million new people will be entering the workforce...

At this career fair, students went from booth to booth and talked with professionals about their careers. They had the choice to visit the booths that interested them. Career days can help students as young as elementary school start thinking more in depth about what they want to do as adults. There are numerous benefits to having career-focused programs in schools to prepare students for their futures with the hope that perhaps their road to a career will be a bit easier.
Three out of every four people in the trades will retire by 2030.
