Event Inspires Young Women

Posted: Friday, February 26, 2016

Contributor, Jennifer Gaffke, Career Technical Center:

Young Women from around the area attended the 11th Annual Careers for Women Conference.  The Wexford-Missaukee CTC sponsors the event every year for local high school girls to explore careers that may be considered non-traditional for girls.  The event was held on February 9 at Fox Hill Event Center.  The event is a huge success every year.  Based on student evaluations, the girls LOVED the event.  They especially enjoyed the diversity of the careers presented and the honesty of the presenters.  More in this inspiring story in the Cadillac News by Mardi Suhs http://cadillacnews.com/story/?contId=109943

CHS Junior, Lina Meyjes:

I really enjoyed the career day, I may have also found a new career choice that may be good for me. The day was well put together, and wasn't boring as many people may expect. I really hope girls keep signing up for this in the upcoming years, I can see that it could have a huge impact on many!
