Forest Area 10th Graders Tour Local Businesses

During the month of February, 10th graders from both East and West Forest toured local businesses. They visited Hughes Pottery, L & B Chocolates, Kelly Green B&B, National Forest Productions, the Jenks Township Building, and the Water and Sewage plant. The students learned about entrepreneurship in our community as well as production and township employment opportunities. They were exposed to a variety of local business models and discussions about what it takes to own and operate a business. They learned that if you have a dream to own a business or take over a business that it is possible to do so in our community and be successful.
