Schools in Door and Kewaunee counties are making sure their students see a world of opportunity locally through a number of different events. Last month, Door County students headed to the Sturgeon Bay Industrial Park for Manufacturing Day while Kewaunee County students learned about agriculture careers at Kinnard Farms in Casco. Last week, Kewaunee High School hosted its second annual career day, which brought together over 700 students from the area with 60 different businesses and organizations. Principal Mark Dax believes businesses are seeing the benefit of interacting with youth when it comes to job recruitment.
Dax says the event also helps kids learn which post-secondary path is most beneficial for their career choice.
