Berkshire 8th Graders Explore Careers

On Tuesday, September 19th, Berkshire’s 8th graders had the opportunity to tour several local businesses to learn a little bit about careers and entrepreneurship in their community as part of an annual event organized by Geauga Growth Partnership. Students traveled to Geauga Growers to learn about hydroponic growing, to Buckeye Chocolates to learn about their family-run concessions business, to Great Lakes Cheese to learn about four departments in their successful company, and to the Geauga County Airport to learn about careers in aviation, mechanics, nursing and paramedics.
