MEQUON — Ozaukee
Economic Development and the Mequon-Thiensville School
District have teamed up to host the seventh-annual
Manufacturing and Career Expo on March 24 at Homestead
High School, 5000 W. Mequon Road.
Companies who want to be represented at the expo, which
runs from 8:30 a.m. to noon, are being sought. Set-up
begins at 8 a.m.
The purpose of the program is to promote manufacturing
to high school students as a potential career path and
to highlight training and educational requirements that
students should be focusing on. Companies will set up
booths in the school’s auxiliary gym where they can
promote their business and the variety of career paths
available. Students will attend as part of classroom
time and travel from booth to booth.
The cost per company is $50, which is used to cover the
cost of the program, including providing door prizes to
students. For more information or to sign up, contact
Kathleen Cady Schilling, executive director of OED, at
