ELKHART - Northern Indiana middle school students found themselves immersed in finding a career pathway during Career Quest 2019, hosted recently by Elkhart-based Lippert Components and Horizon Education Alliance. About 50 businesses were on hand to provide students a better understanding of several industries, including advanced manufacturing, construction and trade, healthcare and information technology.

Students rotated through all industry sectors, spending about 20 minutes at each, while engaging with interactive displays.

“We’re so thankful for the opportunity to share LCI’s many avenues for professional growth, including our Core Values and Leadership Qualities, with local youth,” said Clara Truex, Personal Development Coach at LCI. “Students gained insight into our overall leadership development mission. The students were engaged and curious, and the volunteers were helpful, kind, and much appreciated."

The two-day event held April 17-18 in Elkhart was supported through the Indiana Department of Workforce Development Skill UP Indiana grant.
