Career Week at Pine Grove Elementary School

J.T. Herber, III, a lawyer with Williamson, Friedberg & Jones, LLC, was a guest speaker at a Pine Grove Elementary School career awareness program held on November, 5, 2008.  The Pine Grove Area School District is comprised of numerous boroughs and townships in southern Schuylkill County, including Pine Grove Borough, Tremont Borough, Pine Grove Township, Tremont Township, Frailey Township, and Washington Township.

The program is an annual week-long event for the students in the Pine Grove Area School District, during which they learn about various career options.  Other speakers this year included a local magician/entertainer and a representative from the United States Drug Enforcement Agency.

J.T. spoke to the fourth grader students at Pine Grove Elementary, and discussed a variety of options available to those interested in pursuing a career in law, as well as the importance of education in achieving such a goal.  Attorney Herber also briefly discussed some of the areas of law in which lawyers practice, including litigation, real estate and business/corporate law.

Many of the students were also excited to hear about the case of Nutkin the Squirrel, which was a local court case that originated out of Orwigsburg, in Schuylkill County that caught the attention of the media several years ago.  During his presentation, J.T. also answered a variety of the students’ questions, ranging from the number of pages in a legal books to what lawyers do if a Judge is really good friends with the opposing counsel.
