Kenowa Hills Public School Hosts Business Forum

What does career ready mean to you as a business owner?

How is the Kenowa Hills Public School System preparing students for life after school?

Those were some of the questions posed by Kenowa Hills Superintendent Gerald Hopkins  to community  business leaders at Wednesday's business forum held at Kenowa  Hills Junior High School.  The forum gave school administrators and board members the opportunity to hear directly from those people that interview and hire new employees, and what it is they look for in  prospective employees.  It also gave the guests the opportunity to learn about Kenowa Hills Public Schools, its recent successes, and future objectives and focus.  Kenowa Hills already has a good track record of seeing it's graduates sign up for college, and is committed to make its graduates as college ready or career ready as possible.  More dialogue with the business community is expected in the near future.
