Event Highlights

Career Day- Huron ISD

  TCHP gave students the opportunity to “Think Outside the Bowl” when it comes to choosing a career option in the health and human service field.  She met with 183 students over the course of the day! The students had an opportunity to learn about the many career opportunities that are available right here in the Thumb. They completed a short 5 question survey in which they indicated the career paths they were interested.  They also were asked if they planned on coming back or staying in Huron County. Of the 183 responses, 62 students had an interest in health care. Of the respondents, 36% of the students said they would move back or stay in Huron County; while 46% said maybe. As TCHP moves forward with workforce development activities, we hope to impact the 46% of students that are unsure about coming back to the area by highlighting the endless opportunities that are available right in their own community!
