The R+L Carriers Hometown Showcase visited Wilmington College and Miami Trace High School on September 14 and September 16. Both events gave students an opportunity to learn about the many career opportunities in the logistics industry.
Wilmington College Career Fair
College students around the country are looking for part-time work during school and for career opportunities after graduation. R+L Carriers offer both and we were on hand to talk to Wilmington College students about how the logistics industry can fit their needs. Some of the part-time positions include Freight Handlers and Operations Clerk, perfect for a college student who needs flexibility in their schedule.
Speaking of college students, while we were there we ran into Nolan Keller. You may remember him from one of our stops earlier this year! He was awarded a $1,000 Hometown Scholarship on April 28 when we rolled into Cincinnati La Salle High School. Nolan is now a freshman at Wilmington College studying agriculture and business.
Miami Trace High School
High school students at Miami Trace in Washington Court House, Ohio were treated to full day of learning about the logistics industry. Throughout the day, R+L Carriers representatives gave a presentation to students about how the industry impacts their everyday life and the variety of careers in the industry. Students were then able to tour our interactive hauler.
Our crew stuck around to watch Friday night football too! At the game, we rolled out our tailgating gear complete with corn hole. Students and fans were able to join in on the Hometown Showcase fun! During the game, Miami Trace student Lauren T. received the Hometown Showcase Achievement Award, which demonstrates excellence in the school and community. The school also received a $1,000 scholarship that will be awarded to a student at the end of the school year.
The next Hometown Showcase stops are Cardinal Local School District (9/30), North Pickerington Cross Country Invitational (10/1) and Wilmington High School (10/7). If you are interested in having the Hometown Showcase come to your school or next community event, contact us today!
