From: Grand Haven Chamber of Commerce 
 
For the third year in a row, the Chamber of Commerce Grand Haven Spring Lake Ferrysburg will be hosting a career exploration event called Boomerang in an effort to connect local business professionals with area high school students.  On Tuesday, October 26, 2010, local businesses will spend the day interacting with nearly 800 students from Grand Haven, Spring Lake and Central High Schools. 

Boomerang is a career exploration event designed to attract local talent back to the area after pursuing higher education.  This goal is achieved by showcasing local companies and the kinds of talent they hire.  On October 26th, participating businesses will have a unique opportunity to showcase their organizations and the various career paths available with students.  In turn, students in this community have an opportunity to personally meet, interact and ask questions about careers, education, skills and training with local professionals.  

The development and retention of young leaders is a vital component to our community’s continued growth.  The Chamber of Commerce is proud to connect local businesses and area schools in this effort to achieve lasting relationships with our talented youth.

To learn more about Boomerang, contact the Chamber of Commerce at 616.842.4910 or ghboomerang@gmail.com.
