Students at Bramlette Elementary were given a closer look at some of the machines that help Longview run, and possibly a glimpse into their own professional futures.

The second annual “Career on Wheels” event Nov. 10 featured vehicles from a number of local agencies, companies, and organization, with students able to sit behind the wheel of everything from a firetruck to a taxi cab.

Bramlette Principal Nikita Mumphrey said the goal is to give her students not only a better appreciation for the various roles involved in their community, but to possibly spur their imaginations as to the possibilities in their own lives.

"Who knows, there might some future firefighters, postal deliverers, or bus drivers whose career path is started by something they experienced today," she said.

Groups giving demonstrations to students included Longview Transit, City of Longview, Longview Fire Department, Longview Police Department, U.S. Postal Service, Donna Pitstick, M&D Funeral Service, Longview Cable, Swepco, Enterprise Car Rental, Peters Chevrolet, Special Health Resources, Johnson Trucking, Yellow Cab Taxi, and Constable Danny Craig.
