I had an opportunity today to stop by the Health Care Job Fair at our Appleton Campus, joined by Mary Downs, executive director of the FVTC Foundation, and State Representative Mike Rohrkaste. What a wonderful array of health care employers represented there, all looking for talent to support their facilities or operations in northeast Wisconsin.
We bumped into a sharp group of young students in uniform. My first reaction to myself was, “My goodness, our students are sure getting younger all the time.” I was then relieved to find out they were all high school students from Little Chute. They were on campus to pursue their CNA training and took the opportunity to attend the Job Fair. What a great start they are getting in high school for their desired careers in the health care field.
