Join us to share your “story” about your industry, education and how you give back in your community with local high school students. You will then participate in a Speed Networking style session with the students where they can ask questions and learn more. Here is some feedback from previous events: JHS STUDENT: “The coffee talks were a great experience to talk to business people in our community. I enjoyed listening to their stories and what they do for a job, I also appreciated the advice that they gave us.” CHAMBER MEMBER: “Thanks for making this happen! It was great to talk with the students and the interactive format provided great opportunities to both talk and listen to the students!” GRANDVILLE WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 20 From 10:30A - 11:25A Location: Grandville High School
