Career Quest is underway for its second full year. The workforce program coordinated by Greater Hutch provides career exploration opportunities for Reno County 6th grade students throughout the school year in the form of onsite business tours for individual schools and mega tour days for multiple schools to explore an industry sector. This year begins with Education Days where over 650 students tour Hutchinson Community College, Hutchinson Community College Fire Science, and Hutchinson Career and Technical Education Academy to discover what education and training opportunities are available to them in support of their future career goals. USD 313 completed their experience on Tuesday October 10th, USD 309, USD 310, USD 311, USD 312, Central Christian School, and Holy Cross Grade School are scheduled for Tuesday October 17th and USD 308 is scheduled for Wednesday October 18th.
“Education Days are a great way to help students realize that there are so many right ways to prepare for their future right here in their own community.” says Lauren Storm, Workforce Program Coordinator for Greater Hutch.
