LAST VISIT OF THE SCHOOL YEAR! The Findlay-Hancock County Public Library Bookmobile will be at Van Buren on Monday, May 23, from 11:30 A.M. - 12:30 P.M. Middle and high school students can visit the bookmobile during their lunch periods, so if students have a FHCPL card, please be sure they have their cards so they can check out books. Students can also place holds on books using the FHCPL website (www.findlaylibrary.org
) and pick those up on the bookmobile as long as they identify the bookmobile as the pick-up location (they still need to have their library cards with them). Students who don't have library cards can visit the library in Findlay (206 Broadway St.) to register for a card. Parents must be present with their children and have two forms of identification (one must be a photo ID).
Students are encouraged to continue visiting the library and reading throughout the summer!

Thank you to VB graduate Jessica (Selders) Bankey MPH, MLS(ASCP)CM, Clinical Associate Professor and Medical Laboratory Science Program Director at Bowling Green State University, for speaking to the English 10 classes today about a relatively unknown career in the medical field: Medical Laboratory Science.
Why is this career a great opportunity?
First, 70% of a physician's diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment monitoring is based on accurate laboratory test results. Without medical labs, it becomes much harder for physicians to help their patients, and there is currently a shortage of people going into this field.
Second, students who earn a bachelor's degree in this field and pass the necessary board examinations can expect to earn $60,000-$90,000 upon graduation.
This career path is also a great example of how nuanced careers in the medical field are, which makes it that much more important for students to explore their career options (shadow days, Beyond VB Internships) before finishing high school so they can make informed post-high school decisions.
If any students want to learn more about Medical Laboratory Science or talk about their potential career paths, they can set up a career advising appointment at bit.ly/VBCareerAdvising (case-sensitive).
Root beer floats and gorgeous weather!
