Inaugural North Florida Worlds of Work Completed with Great Success

The inaugural North Florida Worlds of Work (WOW) welcomed over 2,000 high school students to the campuses of Tallahassee Community College and Lively Technical College last Thursday and Friday. By all accounts, the event was a huge success! Over 100 employers (bringing at least 300 employees with them) engaged with students through a variety of hands-on activities representing local career opportunities in their respective industries.

Tallahassee media outlets had lots to say about the event, too! Check out their stories below:
