KY chamber day 2018FRANKFORT, Ky. (1/12/18) — The Muhlenberg Job Corps, Whitney M. Young and Carl D. Perkins Job Corps Centers’ business community liaisons joined together for the annual Kentucky Chamber of Commerce Chamber Day last week.

MJCC was also represented by five students and two staff members. The evening was filled with
speakers from the state government, international government officials and business owners from across the state.

“When Gov. Bevin spoke about educating the workforce to better the economy, he was talking about
us,” said MJCC student Kyle Baker. “ He was talking about Job Corps students and everything that the program represents. That motivates me. I got a real understanding of how, I, as one person, can have an impact. It isn’t just about me.”

All five students in attendance were student government leaders. They mingled with government leadership and got an update on their local economy, job opportunities and the direction of the job market in Kentucky and internationally.

Joseph McConnell, MJCC student government staff sponsor and SPO assistant, was inspired by the
speaker’s words of encouragement and accountability.

KY chamber day 2018 Senator Embry“I found it inspirational that all of the speakers found a way to connect with our students and us as an audience, to help us understand the role we play in the economy and why career training is important to everyone,” said McConnell. “It makes you see the bigger picture.”
