To celebrate National Manufacturing Day, the Ottawa County Business Advisory Council is holding its sixth annual Ottawa County Career Showcase from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, Oct. 4, at the Gary Anderson CMP Competition Center in Port Clinton.
The Business Advisory Council is in its sixth year and is a collaborative effort between private sector and K-12 education to set the stage for students to engage with local companies and learn about career opportunities that exist in the same communities where they live, play and learn. The companies are able to engage students in different hands-on activities that demonstrate skill sets necessary to excel in a broad cross section of careers, including culinary/hospitality, auto mechanics, electrical, engineering, emerging healthcare, machine operation, maintenance and welding (among others). Businesses participating at the event include U.S. Gypsum, Magruder Hospital, Davis-Besse, Ohler & Holzhauer, Northern Manufacturing, Graymont Dolime and more.
