Giving high school students a reason to stay in Kewaunee County after graduation is a hopeful outcome of a unique career day at Luxemburg Casco High School. The freshman class at Luxemburg-Casco High School is participating in a first-of-its-kind program. The Career Readiness Tour and Presentation on Wednesday is believed to be the first time an entire full grade level from Northeast Wisconsin are being shown employment opportunities first hand. Director of Learning Services Mike Snowberry says the event took a lot of time to organize but is well worth it for the students.
Snowberry says the main goal is to expose the students to potential business career opportunities that are out there after high school. About 150 students will be bussed to 18 different businesses and institutions in Kewaunee and Brown counties.
