The Door County Economic Development Corporation hopes to connect more students with local businesses in its second year. The software module called Inspire allows high school students to connect directly with local businesses after they have gone through the Career Cruisin’ program to learn about different careers. After Governor Scott Walker instituted academic and career planning mandates, DCEDC Executive Director Caleb Frostman hopes the program grows even more this school year.
Southern Door became a pilot school for the Inspire module last year, something Frostman hope also expands in the coming year to the other Door County high schools.
