“It was great to bring Career Craze back this year,” said Workforce Solutions Director Lennie Kinney. “We haven’t been able to have any kids camps the past two summers due to the pandemic, so it was great to see kids back on campus.”

“Our camps are a fun way to introduce kids of all ages to a variety of career opportunities, Kinney adds. “Career Craze and our summer camps are an excellent reminder that those kids are our future workforce so getting them excited about a high-demand career is very important for our future economy.”
