Students from three area schools, Carroll High, Kuemper Catholic and Coon Rapids-Bayard, attended the Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC) Carroll Campus’ Career Discovery Day on Tuesday. Students were split into groups based on their interest. The first group, which focused on advanced manufacturing and automotive work, explored DMACC’s auto, welding and building programs and toured the Toyne Fire Apparatus manufacturing facility in Breda. The second group turned their attention towards business. Students there visited Windstar Lines and Biokinemetrics in Carroll and attended a seminar from some of DMACC’S business professors. Another group concentrated on healthcare careers and visited local healthcare providers like St. Anthony Regional Hospital, Family and Specialty Medical Center and New Hope Village. They were also able to experience DMACC’s simlab, which allows students to experience a medical situation through an interactive mannequin. The final group dedicated their attention to human services and visited area organizations like New Opportunities and New Hope. DMACC Student Counselor, Jen Wollesen says, “We truly enjoy hosting these students each semester for Discovery Days. It allows us to show them the number of career options available in the region and that the education needed to work in those careers can be found right here at our Carroll campus.” DMACC will host another Career Discovery Day during the spring semester on Feb. 20.
