Career Connections Academy Well Attended

Over 2,300 seventh and eighth grade students took part in the recent Career Connections Academy at Moraine Park Technical College in Fond du Lac. Moraine Park Marketing Director Patty Lehn says the students from seven area school districts and numerous private schools were able to check out over 70 careers. She says, “We really wanted to showcase the careers that are available to middle-schoolers. So somebody like me when I was in sixth, seventh, eighth grade I didn’t know a lot about a vast array of careers. So it was a really wonderful thing to have throughout our Fond du Lac campus here.” The five career pathways focused on were agriculture, services, manufacturing and skilled trades, health care, and information technology. Moraine Park partnered with Envision Greater Fond du Lac on the program.
