Nellis participates in Lomie Heard career day

Staff Sgt. Matthew Lenegan and Senior Airman Kiara Dykes, 99th Security Forces military working dog handlers, conduct a military working dog demonstration for Lomie Heard Elementary school students March 20 at Nellis Air Force Base. Lenegan and Dykes demonstrated various commands used with the dogs to apprehend a suspect.

NELLIS AIR FORCE BASE, Nev. — Lomie G. Heard Elementary School held its fifth annual Career Event March 20 to 22.

As part of the Clark County School District Counseling Curriculum, Lomie Heard students are expected to investigate the world of work and be exposed to a variety of careers so they can make informed career decisions.

“Most schools hold a career day. Due to the overwhelming support from Nellis AFB as well as various agencies, we are privileged to hold a three day long career event,” said Ms. Terry Ann Coletto, school counselor and event coordinator.

Service members from Nellis played a large part in career day, bringing information on multiple Air Force careers to the students.

“Since I became the principal of Lomie Heard in August, I have felt such support from Nellis AFB. During this career event that support has been even more evident. I am extremely grateful to the units who came out to inspire our youngsters and support our school,” said Ms. Kori Deal, Lomie Heard Elementary principal.

Nellis AFB sent representatives from the pharmacy, fire department, surgical unit, security forces K-9, explosive ordinance disposal as well as the emergency medical technician unit. Col. Peter Ford, 57th Adversary Tactics Group commander, also spoke with the children along with ATG squadron commanders.

Special thanks go out to Mrs. Christina Chafe for her assistance during the planning and hosting of the event and to Mrs. Andrea Diaz for serving as a greeter.

Other Las Vegas business and organizations also participated in this event.
