Ken Karr has once again done a magnificent job organizing vocational month.  Here are just a few of the thank you notes we received from students who took advantage of the Dominion Virginia Powers Career day.

“Thank you for this, it helped me find out what I want to do.  I liked the tour of the Plant [bus tour of station grounds].  I am grateful for the people for talking to us about what they do.”  Blaine
“Thank you very much for giving me the opportunity to learn about how you guys apply power specifically nuclear power to my everyday life. I liked learning how the facility worked and how it was actually safe.  Before hand I had no idea how nuclear power worked and I always thought it would explode.  I thank you again for this great opportunity.”  Andrew
“I would like to say thank you for the opportunity to see the power plant.  I learned a lot about different types of engineering today.  I am grateful for this because engineering has always interested me but I did not know of all the different types before today.”  Clayton
“Thank you for taking us on that very interesting field trip  I enjoyed learning about the process that takes place to create energy.  I really thought it was cool when we got to look at a thermal camera.  I appreciate you taking time out of your day to teach us.”  Alex
“Thanks for the trip to Dominion.  Since going there it’s opened my mind as to what I might be when I grow up.  And I learned how a power plant works.  Thanks for showing me cool stuff.”  Christian
“Thank you for the tour.  I loved the talk on the radio telescope and super computer.” James
“Yo … thank you very much for teaching me about the power plant and all of its intricacies.  I really did appreciate it.  You seemed like a pretty cool guy[(referring to Eric Hendrixson’s welcome presentation] and I really like how you presented the power plant.  Hope I can do this again in the future.” Lian
“Thank you for providing us with the opportunity to tour the nuclear power plant [bus tour of station grounds] and having the people tell us about each part of the jobs of the power plant.  I learned about how the people turn on and work the power plant.  I really enjoyed the tour.”  Drew
