WILMINGTON — Wilmington High School senior students recently toured three local businesses — the Wilmington Air Park, Ferno, and the World Equestrian Center.
The day provided an in-depth experience for the students to learn more about businesses and career opportunities in their community.
The Wilmington-Clinton County Chamber of Commerce was proud to organize the event on behalf of the schools as part of their continued economic and workforce development initiatives.
“We were so grateful to be able to team up with the chamber to provide this opportunity to our students,” said Tyler Williams, WHS counselor. “Our students (and chaperones) learned a lot about different businesses in their own backyard! We plan to get our students out learning about local businesses more in the near future.”
Chamber Executive Director Dessie Rogers added, “We were thrilled to help give the students a ‘behind-the-scenes’ experience with local businesses that they may not have had otherwise, and hope to work with all school districts in Clinton County to provide similar opportunities.”
