On Monday, July 9th, the Bank of the West awarded BASEC and Grow Spink a $10,000 grant to fund BASEC and Grow Spink's Workforce Development Event.
According to BASEC'S Executive Director, Margot Gillette, BASEC and Grow Spink have formed a partnership to create an area Workforce Development Event for elementary and high school students as well as any adults curious about job options in the area.
The event will feature various jobs in the area with hands-on opportunities, equipment and routines. Gillette says it is not a job fair, but is instead geared more toward education on the jobs available in the area.
The event will take place in early September and all area students from several counties will be invited to attend. Gillette said that within the next six weeks, a date will be confirmed. At that time, more details will be available.
