Fillmore County High School Students Tour County Businesses

The Fillmore County Development Corporation (FCDC) in cooperation with the Fillmore County schools and local businesses held Career Day-Industry Tours for Fillmore County Juniors on Wednesday, September 19, 2018. Fifty five students from Exeter-Milligan High School, Fillmore Central High School and Shickley High School attended.

The students were able to choose from three tracks: Business, Marketing & Management---Communications & Information Systems, Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources---Skilled & Technical Sciences, and Health Sciences---Human Sciences & Education.

The goal of the day was to expose students to some of the career opportunities in Fillmore County.   The FCDC wanted to expose students to all aspects of a business that they would not see from the outside. The tours allowed the Fillmore County juniors to hear comments about employment opportunities and training requirements from people in the business.

Twenty businesses were on the tour and forty five people presented information. Lunch was provided through a grant from the Fillmore County Foundation.
