We delivered more than packages this past weekend. The R+L Carriers Hometown Showcase rolled into three communities, delivering community engagement, career opportunities and educational scholarships.
Collins Career Tech Center
Located in Chesapeake, Ohio, Collins Career Tech Center prepares students, youth and adult, to enter the workforce, and advance in today’s competitive job market. Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) School, graduates are equipped with the essential tools for success when entering the job market. STEM skills give R+L Carriers applicants an edge, whether applying for our positions in IMT (Information Technology) or Mechanics.
Collins Career Tech Center students toured the Hometown Showcase hauler to learn about various career opportunities suited for STEM school alumni. If you’re interested in a similar career, visit our Career Center to learn more.
Wright State University – April Craze
April Craze is an annual tradition at Wright State University that includes live music, local food vendors, inflatable games and the presence of numerous student organizations. This year R+L Carriers Hometown Showcase provided our interactive entertainment hub. Despite this event not sanctioned as an official job fair, students were able to talk to R+L Carriers representatives about career opportunities upon graduation.
The Cornhole Challenge was a big hit at the hauler too – make the first of four tosses and receive an official Hometown Showcase stadium seat. Make at least one of the other three tosses and receive an official Hometown Showcase blanket. P.S. nobody left empty-handed!
Coldwater High School – Double Header Baseball Game
The Hometown Showcase goal is to support achievement in communities around the country. In December, the Hometown Showcase was a sponsor for the 2015 OHSAA Football Championships. The three-day event in Columbus, Ohio featured 14 Ohio high school football teams, including the Coldwater High School Cavaliers. The Cavs beat Canton Central Catholic for the Division V State Championship and were ushered into the R+L Carriers Hometown Showcase Championship Zone, a pep rally for the winners that featured drumlines, cheerleaders and fans from the school. The athletic department received a $1,000 Scholarship on behalf of R+L Carriers to be given to a student demonstrating servant leadership, sportsmanship and dedication to their community.
Four months later the Hometown Showcase and Coldwater High School have connected again, this time at a double-header baseball game this past Saturday. In addition to the action on the field, off the field a R+L Carriers presented a $1,000 scholarship to a Coldwater High School athlete, Mitch Clune. Football player Mitch Clune, a senior at Coldwater High School is a leader on and off the field and looks forward to studying Chemical Engineering this fall at The Ohio State University.
Delivering opportunities to students across America through community engagement is the purpose of the Hometown Showcase.
