Educators from Elk and McKean Counties recently participated in an “Educator in the Workplace” event at Domtar Paper Mill. Educators toured the facility and worked with Domtar staff and administration throughout the day. Educators were able to learn about the career opportunities at the mill and how what they teach in the classroom is applied on the job. After the experience, educators agreed that they were excited to share what they learned with their students and were impressed with the many opportunities and benefits the company brings to the area. This event was offered in partnership through the Community Education Center’s DISCOVER Partnership and the Potter County Education Council’s Business and Education Connect Program. Both programs are aimed at creating an awareness about local opportunities and forming connections between educators and local companies.
