Forty-two students from Desert View Middle
School spent their career day at William Beaumont
Army Medical Center on May 15.
“Beaumont was selected for career day activities
because of the numerous career options that the stu-
dents could be exposed to here,” said Ulysses
Loubriel Jr., seventh grade mathematics teacher and
student escort at Desert View Elementary School.
“This visit to WBAMC affords our students the
opportunity to be exposed to many career fields that
are in and out of the military.
“This visit also presents the opportunity for stu-
dents to see firsthand the quality military and civil-
ian staff that you have here treating Soldiers, fami-

will see that there is an extensive amount of educa-
