16 students from SAS-Jackson and Eagle River Secondary got to see one of Salmon Arm’s largest employers in operation.
SD 83’s Careers Department, the Council of Forest Industry and Canoe Forest Products sponsored the tour of the plywood plant highlighting the different careers that take place inside and outside of the facility. The plant current employs over 200 staff operating the mill 24 hours a day, five days a week. The other two days are used as a form of shut down for tradespeople to work on machines to get them ready for the next week’s production run.
If you have any great ideas of potential career tours for our students, don’t hesitate to contact George Richard at email@example.com or phone or text 778-824-1188.
