Conference Center of the Cardinal Inn, Albion, was extra busy last Thursday, Oct. 24, when 110 Boone County freshman and sophomore students arrived to explore possible future careers at Business and Industry (B&I) Day.
B&I Day was co-hosted by the Boone County Development Agency and the Boone County Emerging Leaders.

Participant numbers increased by more than 30 this year, with students coming from Boone Central, Riverside, St. Edward and Newman Grove High Schools.
