O’Brien County, Iowa — The fourth annual O’Brien County Career Day scheduled for Friday, April 24, has been cancelled for 2020, according to O’Brien County Economic Development Director Kiana Johnson.
The event, designed to introduce local high school sophomores to careers in manufacturing, healthcare, construction and agriculture, received word from Northwest Iowa Community College and several other industry partners that they would no longer be able to participate or provide facilities this Spring, as they have closed to outside visitors.
“We completely respect our business partners wanting to take every precaution to ensure the safety, health and well-being of their employees and businesses,” Johnson said. “We want the same for our business and school partners, and all of our communities. So, with heavy hearts, our committee has decided to cancel the event this year.”
Johnson said that the committee will make every effort to have the event again next year and continue the annual tradition.
