The Door County Economic Development Corporation is happy with the feedback they are receiving about last month’s Manufacturing Days in Sturgeon Bay. By an unofficial count, about 270 students from Door County’s four mainland schools and 350 to 450 unique visitors took part in the two day event allowing them an opportunity to visit with nine different businesses located within the Sturgeon Bay Industrial Park. Executive Director Caleb Frostman hopes they will be able to broaden their horizons next year.
The DCEDC is continuing their efforts to connect students with jobs in Door County through its Inspire program, which is linking schools with close to 40 different businesses through a software module.
