Students consider what they can be at BCCAN

Hundreds of ninth-grade students from Barry County high schools attended the Barry County College Access Network, or B.C.C.A.N., Job Fair on Tuesday. The focus of this year’s Job Fair was “What’s your plan?” to promote aspirations and awareness for future job prospects. Representatives from many local businesses gave presentations on everything from trade school apprenticeship programs to practical advice on how to plan for future employment goals. Participating employers included Bradford White, FlexFab, Miller Real Estate and Thornapple Credit Union, as well as representatives from area trade school programs including the Wayland Carpenter and Millwright Training Center, Operating Engineers Local No. 324, and Cedar Creek Machinists Training, LLC. Here, students had the opportunity to use a simulator provided by Operating Engineers Local No. 324 with the assistance of an apprentice from the Sam T. Hart Education Center in Howell.
