WOW 2022

Last week Dunbarton participated in Southeast WOW: Worlds of Work with the Southeast AlabamaWorks and it was a great experience. Southeast WOW is a 2-day event held at the Peanut Festival Fair Grounds for all 8th graders and 11th graders in the Wiregrass area. WOW gives these middle schoolers and high schoolers the opportunity to see various industries in our area so they may hopefully become interested in a career path that encourages them to stay here in the Wiregrass and work for one of these area employers.

We had two activity areas for students to engage in participation; measuring a frame sample to test their measuring tape reading abilities and a contest to see which student could screw in a hinge the fastest! The hinge contest winner received a Dunbarton mini measuring tape. Thank you to the Dunbarton employees that helped at the event telling about their office or plant job while demonstrating our product! I think fun was had by employees and students! We can’t wait for WOW 2023!
