Chamber Chairman Dr. Christopher Locklear's focus for 2018 revolves around exposing middle and high school students to potential career pathways in our community. In doing so, the Chamber has positioned our Education Summit for the year to set the stage for work that will launch in a pilot program this summer with the Boys & Girls Club, followed by an open opportunity for middle and high school students county wide during the 2018-2019 school year.
The 2018 Education Summit, held in partnership with the Pitt County Development Commission, will begin with looking at our future world, jobs current students will likely see available, and trainings in the workforce. Following this presentation will be a keynote discussion with Sarah Moylan, senior director of talent for the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce, on a program they created and have successfully run for two years; our Chamber is working with the Greater Omaha Chamber to model a similar program here locally.
Cheryl Olmstead from Pitt County Schools will also be giving a presentation on 21st Century Students. Additional special guest speakers include local business leaders from Greenville Utilities Commission and Hyster-Yale Group.
