CROSSVILLE — Cumberland County eighth-grade students attended a career exploration fair last week at Tennessee Technology Center in Crossville. Students moved through 16 different career clusters in a variety of professions and learned more about careers they may be interested in. Above, students change tires on a mock tire mount. The students used real power wrenches, studs and bolts for the job. The tire assembly was provided by Dave Kirk Automotive and was one of several display booths at the fair. The fair was arranged through Cumberland County CTE Counselor Nancy Hyder and TTCC Counselor Barbara Thornhill and Deborah Shrout.
