Job Fair draws students, others


From left in the foreground, Karissa and Scott Lewis visited the booths of various businesses that had been set up for Wednesday’s Community Job Fair held in the Wilmington High School gymnasium. Organizers were especially pleased with the response during the job fair’s first hour when regional high school students were the invited attendees. The students, in particular soon-to-graduate high school seniors, were looking for summer jobs. Many of the students were well-prepared — carrying their resumés and wearing dress clothes. One business there offering summer jobs is Ahresty Wilmington Corporation which produces automotive parts. Wilmington-Clinton County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Dessie Rogers said she is extremely proud of the collaborative effort that brought about the event.
