Students from the WELS-North and Creative Alternatives Program attended the Washington County Career Skills Day on February 11. The day consisted of engaging in fun activities like networking with students from other schools and programs, rubbing elbows with county vendors, and participating in competitions in application writing, interviewing, and general knowledge. Our students arrived looking professional, had a lot of fun meeting new people, and gained some very important life-long skills that will carry into their adult working lives.
