Clark Enerson signSM

Elmwood-Murdock High School junior Harrison Koehn was selected to participate in the FCCLA program A Day In Your Future. On February 9, he attended a job shadow at Clark & Enerson architectural design firm in Lincoln. Harrison met with three architects and two student interns to see what they do at the firm and ask them questions. He learned about the day-to-day job of an architect and got to see some of their best work. Harrison has the opportunity to ask what he could do now to better prepare me to enter a college architecture program.
