Giving high school students a reason to stay in Kewaunee County after graduation is a hoped-for outcome of a career fair at the Luxemburg Casco High School. The Luxemburg-Casco School District is planning a Career Readiness Tour and Presentation for freshman students. The day will give students the opportunity to visit businesses and industries throughout Kewaunee and Brown counties. Director of Learning Services Mike Snowberry says the planned event is February 20 and is a way for ninth graders to explore post-secondary and career options. He shares how the idea came about.
Snowberry says the main goal is to expose the students to potential business career opportunities and make them think about which ones fit their interests. He says Luxemburg-Casco High School may take faculty on similar tours during their August in-service. 150 students will be bussed to about 20 different businesses during the Career Readiness Tour, according to Snowberry.
