On Monday, October 10th, KWPA had an exceptional opportunity to meet with 30 guidance counselors from different Lycoming County schools. The counselors were on a tour learning about different job opportunities in the area and what skills were required for these jobs.
Closing the tour for the day was Penn College of Technology where KWPA was able to share about the lumber and forest products industry in PA. Erich Doebler, Forestry Instructor and KWPA board member, spoke on behalf of KWPA. These types of opportunities are what KWPA looks forward to because one of our major goals is to be able to create partnerships with schools to create interest in the lumber and wood products companies. We also strive to promote jobs in the industry, so meeting with guidance counselors this week was an ideal opportunity for KWPA!
We are looking forward to continuing to grow relationships with the connections we made during the presentation. Thank you to our members who make days like this possible!
