News from The Lincoln Chamber of Commerce                              http://ui.constantcontact.com/visualeditor/visual_editor_preview.jsp?age...



                               counselors and instructors with Lincoln
                               employers. Over 60 Lincoln teachers
                               are impacted by this programming each
                               year.

                               The connection allows teachers to
                               explore some of the many career
                               opportunities available in Lincoln.
                               Additionally, they also learn about the
                               training required for these careers and
                               the personal qualities that employers
                               look for when making hiring decisions.
                               Teachers are then able to apply this
                               information toward better assisting their
                               students in career planning and course
                               selection.

                               "As availability of skilled workers
                               becomes a bigger issue, exposing
                               educators to Lincoln career paths is
                               vital," stated Wendy Birdsall, President
                               of the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce.

                               The 2008 Summer Connection Teacher
