Future Water Managers

Dozens of students between the ages of 9 and 18 explored District offices in April as part of the annual “Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.” This is the tenth year the District has participated in the nationwide event. Students spent the day learning about activities at the District and daily tasks of their parents, guardians, relatives or friends. In Brooksville, the children participated in two hands-on water resources exercises and toured six departments before spending the afternoon “job shadowing.”
