Terry Reicks, manager of Cargill Albion, explains recent expansions at the plant to students and Business and Industry Day.Middle school students from throughout Boone County were exposed to possible future careers during Business and Industry Day sponsored by the Boone County Development Agency last Wednesday, Feb. 18.
A group of 76 students, which included mostly seventh and eighth graders, spent the morning learning about local opportunities and visiting businesses. The students were from Boone Central, St. Michael’s, Riverside and St. Edward schools.
The goal of the day was to give the students an opportunity to learn about some of the job and careers that are available in the local community.
