The annual MHS Career Day was held Wednesday, February 15. Nearly 200 junior and senior students from Milbank, Grant-Deuel, Summit, and Wilmot took part in the event that featured over 20 local businesses. “Our goal is to show that Milbank is a good place to live, get a good job, and raise a family,” said MHS principal Dan Snaza.
The representatives from each business showcased their career choices and explained the various skills, qualifications, and aptitudes needed for successful careers in their field. Careers highlighted were: agriculture, food and natural resources, architecture and construction, the arts, AV tech and communications, business management and administration, finance, education and training, health science, human services, information technology, law, public safety and corrections, government and public administration, manufacturing, marketing, science and technology, engineering and math, transportation, distribution and logistics, and electric and HVAC.
“We added a new off-site tour for students interested in the construction field,” stated GCDC Executive Director Bobbie Bohlen. “That was a fun bonus for the students and something we will try to do more of in the coming years.”
