As part of an effort to educate youngsters about occupations and whet their appetite for a new exhibit, the National Churchill Museum is offering a free presentation to area schools.

Mandy Plybon, museum education and public programs coordinator, visited fourth-graders at Bush Elementary School Monday morning to share information with them regarding The Way We Worked Smithsonian Institute exhibition. Plybon spoke to the students about different occupations and the skills required for them.

"Many businesses and organizations in Callaway County have come together to make The Way We Worked a truly community experience," Plybon said. "We want Callaway County teachers to be a part of this collaboration; using the school tour as an opportunity to explore the concept of work with their students."
