Our own Kristin Kearns, Vice President & Manager of Heritage Oaks Bank, Atascadero, hosted Mobile Career Day for eight students from Del Rio High School, and five students from Atascadero High School, accompanied by Kahlin Wolf Hoover, instructor at Del Rio, and Rich Johnson.

On Thursday, January 26th, these 13 students went to the local headquarters of Heritage Oaks Bank in Paso Robles.  The first part of the day was spent learning customer service.  In the afternoon, the students learned how to process and understand banking transactions, using a cash box, and related banking forms.  This was a hands-on experience, taught by the Training Department of Heritage Oaks Bank.  Cheryl Garnsey and Carrie Buhl are Learning Specialists with the bank, who put the program together.  We had eight Del Rio and five AHS students, from 8:30 until 2:40.


 

On the van on the ride home, the students were all buzzing about the experience.  We host these events to help students explore possible career paths.  Anyone interested in hosting a Mobile Career Day may contact the Vocational Service Committee through our website www.TheCareerHelper.org.
