Lunch with the Laureates
This event was created to engage our Business Hall of Fame Laureates with the students in our community. The Laureates and 8th grade students from Glenwood Leadership Academy, our Hall of Fame Ambassadors, will assemble at the Southern Indiana Career and Technical Center where the Laureates will share inspiring stories of personal and professional growth to encourage these students to pursue their dreams and to remember all things are possible with hard work and determination. Our Laureates were able to translate their visions into reality and develop our region into a place where dreams do come true. Our goal is to instill a sense of hope in these students and for them to realize that our region is a spectacular place to work, thrive, and live.

JA JobSpark 2019
JA JobSpark is a hands-on career expo for area students in grades 8-12. The event is meant to "spark" an interest in students and get them excited for their future. Students will learn about skills needed for jobs that will be in demand when they graduate, while utilizing equipment and performing activities used in those jobs daily. Students will have a better understanding of the courses they would need to take in high school, a track for post-secondary education, and a clear career pathway based on their interests. Students learn about the depth and breadth of great opportunity right here in our region.
