Colleges lined up.
Law enforcement took the next row.
The military took up positions on the side.
And Mary Kay shared the middle with the Art Institute and the Mogollon Health Alliance.
Ah, Career Day at Payson High School.
Starting last year, attending this day became a graduation requirement to give students an idea of what their choices are in life.
Students can learn about going the trade school route through the Universal Technical Institute, which trains future mechanics.
Or students could meet representatives from the three state universities, University of Arizona, Arizona State and Northern Arizona University.
Private schools, such as Grand Canyon University also attended.
Organizations, such as the Payson Rimstones Rock Club, told students about scholarships. The rock club hosts an annual Gem and Mineral show at the Mazatzal Casino. All proceeds go toward a scholarship that supports students going into the sciences, math or engineering.
This year, the show will be on Nov. 16 and 17.
