What our partners say about Career Connect

“Over the years, we have had challenges finding the qualified talent we need. We see partnering with Union’s Career Connect as a way to grow our own talent, to be engaged, and to help students understand the career pathways available in manufacturing.”
– Stephanie Cameron, Community Affairs Director, APSCO Manufacturing

Career Connect

“I want to emphasize . . . it is fun! We really enjoy working with these kids. Union Public Schools is committed to this program – there is absolutely no doubt about it. They are the only school district I know of where I can literally tell you what their #1 priority is: ‘100% graduation, college and career ready.’ Everyone in their organization gets it, and they are
committed to it.” – Todd Pfeifer, COO/Vice President, Ebsco Spring Company

Career Connect

“If I had to rate this experience on a scale of 1-10, it would be a 10. These students have been polite. They have been overwhelmingly nice. You put a wrench in their hand and watch them go! We have emphasized safety, and every one of these students has had no problem abiding by the rules. It’s really been a win-win situation for both of us.” – Gary Burr, Mechanical Shop Supervisor, City of Tulsa Maintenance

Career Connect

“When you give the students an opportunity, they will impress you. We still have employees from the Union Career Connect program that came in as interns. I think the potential of these kids, once you get to know them and give them a chance, will blow you away.” – Stephanie Cameron, Community Affairs Director, APSCO Manufacturing

Red Ribbon Week

Red Ribbon Week, which is celebrated annually October 23-31, is the nation’s oldest and largest drug prevention awareness program. Union Public Schools will host a myriad of activities during this time to raise awareness as well.

Red Ribbon Week was started after the death of Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Special Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena, who in 1985 was brutally tortured and murdered by drug traffickers he was investigating in Mexico.  As a tribute to SA Camarena, high school friend, Henry Lozano and Congressman Duncan Hunter, created “Camarena Clubs” and the wearing of a red ribbon to show their oppositions to drugs.

Union school sites will host activities ranging from special assemblies, special dress-up days to classroom activities that address the concerns related to illicit drugs.
