R.C. Murphy Junior High School eighth- and ninth-graders are not only dining on tasty meals during their lunch periods this year, but are also learning about a number of exciting professional opportunities through a program called the Career Café. 

The event, which is being held several times throughout the year, enables interested students the chance to meet with local professionals about their careers in small settings. During the most recent program, students learned about the world of graphic design from Allison Schwartz, who works at Stony Brook University. 

Ms. Schwartz provided insight into her chosen career path, noting how she evolved into the position she currently holds as well as how she extends her passion to her freelance business. Additionally, she noted how she had a passion for design at an early age and how she has followed that drive since taking advanced art classes in high school. 

The initiative is being organized by school counselor Jessica Ennis.
