WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Harrison High School freshmen are already thinking about what they want to do after graduation.

Thanks to career day, those students know a little more about their options.

People from several different occupations gave presentations about their chosen field of work Wednesday.

Freshman Jackson Flemming knows what he wants to do for a living.

"In the future, I really want to be a detective, I'd really like to solve murders and bring people to justice," said Flemming. 

Lucky for him, there was a session on law enforcement as well as media, skilled trades, manufacturing and health services.

Principal Cory Marshall said it's never too early to start preparing for the future.

"They're really starting to shape their own ideas and career paths in terms of classes they would want to take here at Harrison or avenues they would want to explore beyond high school," said Marshall. 

Judge Faith Graham and Prosecutor Patrick Harrington were the keynote speakers.

Everyone else hosted 10 minute presentations throughout the morning.
