There’s always so much to do at the 4-H fair. You can try all kinds of different food, ride the rides and look at all the various fair projects but did you know that you also have access to all sorts of information about further education? The Starke County Career Success Coalition has their very own booth set up in the commercial building during fair week.

Representatives from the organization will be available, passing out information for a variety of training opportunities. The coalition has info from a plethora of local places such as the Knox Beauty College, Ivy Tech, Work One Training Program and the SCILL Center.
