The Monthly Blog is a new addition to the BCDA website. BCDA does 3 newsletters a year. The newsletters are sent out to every mail box in Boone County. We will also be uploading the newsletters to our website. The monthly blog will be a way for us to share current information with local businesses and current Boone County residents. If there is a topic you would like us to blog about feel free to contact our office.
Mitch and I (Aubrey) have been working hard to put together Business &Industry day for the 8th graders and 11th graders of Boone County. B&I day is a way for the local students to meet with business owners/mangers to promote awareness of potential careers available right here in Boone County. The schools participating this year include Boone Central, St. Michaels, Riverside and St. Edward.
The middle school students will have the opportunity to tour the Boone County Health Center, Cargill, Cornerstone Bank and Green Line Equipment. We wanted to give the 8th graders a chance to visit some of the larger employers in the county that offer a wide variety of careers. The high school students will have the opportunity to visit a wider variety of businesses throughout the county with an emphasis on a more specific job/career.
The middle school day will take place February 18 and the high school day will be on April 15. If your business is interested in participating the high school B&I day please contact our office to line something up. We think this is a great opportunity to get local students into businesses they could potentially have a career at or a line of work they may be interested in pursuing. We hope that some students will have a chance to line up summer internships and develop a relationship with business owners/managers throughout Boone County.
If you would like more information please call Mitch at the BCDA office (402)-395-3356. We would like as many business as possible to participate in the high school B&I day to make it as successful as possible.
