Ottawa County educational leaders find career opportunities in service and tourism

On Thursday, May 15, representatives from local school districts, Joint Vocational Schools, and Terra Community College joined with the Ottawa County Improvement Corporation (OCIC) and United Way in Ottawa County for a second bus tour focusing on local career opportunities in the service and tourism sector. 

The program was held in follow-up to a December 2013 Manufacturing Bus Tour, giving school leadership and guidance counselors a first-hand look into the vast service and tourism career opportunities in the area. The program was sponsored by the Catawba Island Club, Magruder Hospital, OCIC, and United Way in Ottawa County.

Similar to the December manufacturing tour, participants were able to visit and get an in-depth look at the skills necessary to work in Ottawa County’s service and tourism sector, a sector that is abundant and unique to the community. “With the recent opening of the Hospitality Management Program at Terra Community College, Ottawa County’s Marine Skills Program, and the various healthcare certification and degree programs in our area, it is evident that the continuing education opportunities are here to support our service and tourism industries,” said OCIC Director, Jamie Beier Grant.
