To meet that objective, the Chamber recently held a Career Awareness Fair for 1,200 eighth graders at Cleveland State Community College. “It is not too early in eighth grade to begin thinking about what careers will be available for these students and what preparation they need in order to become part of a qualified workforce for our community,” Sherry Crye, director of workforce development, said. The Career Awareness Fair consisted of exhibits from the Career Technical Education programs offered in the three local high schools, as well as some of the programs offered at Cleveland State Community College and the Tennessee College of Applied Technology. Business and industry exhibitors included Lewis Group Architects, Cleveland Utilities, DENSO, Tennova Healthcare –Cleveland, WACKER –Charleston, Volkswagen Academy, Wright Brothers Construction, EATON, and Stowers Machinery. Representing service careers were Bradley County Sheriff’s Office, Cleveland Fire and Rescue, and Cleveland Police Department. “The business and industry exhibits provided students an opportunity to explore what is needed to be a successful employee or college student.
