Last week, our group of passionate students within the Career Readiness Program, applied life and job skills at several community events. Some of those events were the Morningside Job Fair, canvassing for the job fair, People in the Garden: Healthy Food Fair, and a visit to Master Dry.
Thursday April 27, The Morningside Job Fair consisted of 16 companies and 140 job seekers. One company hired 45 people on the spot! Our CRP students used their experience while participating in this fair, and volunteering to ensure the success of the event.
Sunday April 30, we had the People in the Garden: Healthy Food Fair at SEEED Knox. People in the community enjoyed healthy food samples, cookbooks, saw our finished greenhouse, received seeds and plants, gardening literacy and learned about the mission of SEEED.
At Master Dry, the students were inspired by owner, Josh Smith’s words of inspiration, while touring the facility. Special thanks to Mr. Smith and Master Dry’s Community Ambassador, Kathryn Ann Holt, for hosting the event for our students.
If you missed the events from last week, don’t worry there will be more to come. Please comment and share your thoughts with us here at SEEED Knox.
Until next time, keep growing!
