The GST Michigan Works! Owosso booth at the Shiawassee County Fair saw a total of 856 individual visitors throughout the week!
Fair-goers were interested to learn about GSTMW! services and took advantage of informational flyers and packets. It was a great way to reach out to the community. Visitors expressed that they were job searching themselves, or they knew someone who was. Several have followed up with the office for services including interest in training scholarships!
As an added bonus, several customers impacted by GSTMW! services stopped by as well. One former customer who received training dollars for Truck Driving 10 years ago stopped by to share that he’s still driving for Meijer and had even driven their truck in the parade for the fair! He said he couldn’t have done it without our help!
Another man stopped to say “Hi” and reported that he tells folks about GSTMW! all the time. We were able to help him out of a dark chapter of his life. When he looks back at that time, he is confident that the assistance he got from GST MI Works! was a great asset to move forward from a dark time. “I tell people to come see you all the time!” he said.
