Members of PA District 11 toured local businesses Thursday in a program sponsored by SkillsUSA Council.  Students from Bethlehem Area Vocational-Technical School, Career Institute of Technology, Lehigh Career & Technical Institute, and Monroe Career & Technical Institute participated in the program, designed to increase students’ awareness of career opportunities at local businesses.  The day began at Crayola where SkillsUSA Council Board Member, Jim McCauley welcomed everyone and shared his experiences working at Crayola for 18 years.  Students toured the facility, witnessing the production of crayons and markers.  After lunch the students travelled to Martin Guitar where they saw first-hand the level of craftsmanship necessary to create a guitar.
