DeWitt Chamber Offers Scholarships to Clinton County Students
Per U.S. News, “Good jobs are those that pay well, challenge us, are a good match for our talents and skills, aren’t too stressful, offer room to advance and provide a satisfying work-life balance.” Opinions may vary on what is stressful and what is not, what is satisfying and what is not, but I think we can all agree, working in a profession we enjoy can be the most rewarding.
When U.S. News ranked the 100 Best Jobs it is not surprising careers in the medical industry accounted for 20 of the top 25 and 32 of the top 50. For most careers associated with the medical industry, you will find an abundance of job openings, the median salary is good and the unemployment rate is low.
If a career path in the medical industry is not for you; how about “Skilled Trades”? Did you know the median salary for a Registered Nurse is $67,490 while the median salary for a Construction Manager is $87,400? Studies project job openings for Electricians will exceed 85,000 while openings for Plumbers will exceed 50,000.
If you have a desire to seek a career path in the “Medical Services” Industry or the “Skilled Trades” Industry, the DeWitt Area Chamber of Commerce has two scholarship programs available which may be of interest to you. Each program offers $1,000 scholarships to 2017 Clinton County graduating seniors. In addition, the Medical Services Program is open to Clinton County adults returning to school to seek a career in the Medical Services field.
