The Great American Teach-In is a day set aside for students of all ages to listen to volunteers from a variety of professions talk about their work, and why education had a big part to play in their personal and professional success.
The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office has multiple members from the agency visiting over 75 schools in Pinellas and neighboring counties on Thursday, November 21st.
Sheriff Bob Gualtieri has encouraged PCSO staff to participate “because it is a great chance for students to become acquainted with the many career opportunities with the Sheriff’s Office, and have some fun meeting our members and asking questions.”
Just a few of the highlighted presentations include:
- Sheriff Gualtieri will be speaking to students at Osceola Middle School at 10:00 a.m.
- The PCSO Canine Unit will be participating at Lakewood Elementary, Dunedin Middle, and Belleair Elementary.
