East Texas Girls Expand Their Horizons

Girl power was in full force Saturday at Tyler Junior College.

A career workshop was held for girls from the sixth grade through eighth grade on the topic of "Expanding Your Horizons." Over six hundred girls attended seminars to show them some of the many career paths open to them.

KLTV's own Gillian Sheridan was one of the speakers for the program, which is designed to help girls start thinking about their careers early in life. Studies show girls are less enthusiastic about math and science than boys, so this program also stressed how those fields are used in many careers.
