GTR REGION, MS – Courtesy of

The FORGE Foundation has announced this year’s FORGE Your Path Career Expo, to take place at EMCC from October 25th from 7:30AM to 3 PM. Eighth graders from 28 regional schools of all sorts will have the opportunity to see and climb into all sorts of construction machinery and the like, as well as get hands-on time with related materials and techniques. There will also be a Business After Hours reception event the night before, on Tuesday, Oct 24th, which is open to all comers.

Katie McCrary, a FORGE founding board member from McCrary-West Construction spoke about the event: “This expo is a great opportunity for students to learn how to link their current educational outlook to a skilled trade. We want students to learn not only how they can enter these fields but thrive and advance as experts and leaders in these industries. We want to showcase our community as pioneers in developing a workforce pipeline beginning in K-12 and continuing through trade school, community college, or 4-year programs.”
