MATTOON -- Hundreds of 8th grade students from across Central Illinois got to see what their futures may hold.

Their inspiration was Ben Glenn, who's known as the Chalk Guy. He worked on this landscape drawing right in front of them. Glenn told them how much he loves being an artist and encouraged the kids to follow their dreams.

Students say they had fun looking at all the different options. Lake Land College hosted the Career Fair.
