2024 Career & Workforce Expo Connects Local Companies and Students

On February 6, approximately 1,000 high school students from Decatur City, Hartselle City, Morgan County, Athens City, Madison City and private school systems attended the 2024 Career & Workforce Expo. The annual event was held at the Ingalls Harbor Pavilion in partnership with Calhoun Community College and the Morgan County Economic Development Association. More than 60 local business and industry partners spoke with high school students about career opportunities in our area and the skills needed to fill those positions.

“The goal of the Career and Workforce Expo is to inform and educate our area high school students on careers and curriculum needed for regional job openings and to develop the skills necessary for placement and advancement when they enter the workforce,” said Amber Fortenberry, Director of Talent Development and Recruitment for the Decatur–Morgan County Chamber of Commerce.
