Over 200 students from the three Kewaunee County High Schools participated in the Manufacturing Career Day on Tuesday in Algoma. Ninth-graders from Algoma, Kewaunee and Luxemburg-Casco schools toured three manufacturers throughout the day. Students visited Multi Color, Olson Fabrication, and CTI Hospitality. The event, sponsored by the Kewaunee County Economic Development Corporation, is designed to showcase career opportunities in manufacturing. KCEDC Executive Director Richard Baker says underclassmen exposed to manufacturing careers are more likely to enter that field.
Baker adds that the Manufacturing Career Day event also included presentations that explored career opportunities in banking, human resources, agriculture, and public safety.
