Students at Southern Hills Elementary in Wichita Falls are learning how to turn their dreams into reality.
Around 200 students participated in "Dream Big" Career Day at Southern Hills.  Sponsored by Midwestern State University and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Wichita Falls, students got the chance to hear from guest speakers on 15 different career paths, including police, firefighters, photographers, teachers, and area coaches.
This is the second year for "Dream Big" Career Day, and organizers say they hope to expand it.

Dominique Calhoun of Multi-Cultural Services at MSU says, "What we want to do is add some other elementary schools, because we believe that this activity we have is fundamental to getting students to believe in themselves and actually pursue their dreams."
Officials from MSU say events like today's are important for kids to attend when they're young because the average student knows what career they want to go into by the time they leave elementary school.
