A newly formed partnership between Missouri Employers Mutual and Columbia Area Career Center is taking career and technical education to a new level. MEM is providing an opportunity for 3 career center students with computer technical experience to apply for part-time positions at MEM as Night Batch Operators. The students were required to apply and interview for the position and are currently completing their training and are set to begin work next week. Congratulations to Rock Bridge seniors, Jon Antel and Connor Crabtree and Rock Bridge junior CJ Phillips for being hired. The opportunity is a win-win for both sides. MEM gets knowledgeable students eager to advance their skill set and the students get real world work experience and local community contacts that will benefit them now and in the future.
